intu launches Green Lab

Published:  17 May, 2017

Innovation lab will drive sustainability initiatives across the business.

The project – dubbed Green Lab – was launched as intu revealed it has met its zero landfill target four years early and is close to reaching its 2020 carbon reduction and recycling targets.

Measures introduced to date include increasing the number of electrical vehicle charging points across intu centres to 78 as intu gears up to charging an estimated 900 electric cars a month by the end of 2017.

Further initiatives planned include utilising the success of solar panels on the roof of intu Chapelfield to encourage more intu centres to start generating their own electricity. intu is also working with sustainability charity Bioregional to test new innovations that can be rolled out across the retail sector and intu centres nationwide.

Alexander Nicoll, corporate responsibility director at intu, said: “Being a responsible business is at the heart of our brand values and can be seen through our culture. This has ensured we have a rich history of delivering against our targets and driving forward sustainable initiatives. The Green Lab project enables us to achieve greater innovation within this important area.”
