Lee Valley Regional Park Authority operates and manages a wide range of open spaces, venues and activities – many of which contribute to a range of positive environmental outcomes. However, as with all organisations, our carbon emissions could be reduced and our environmental performance could be improved. We want to be an Environmental Champion and committed to this aspiration by adopting a new Environment Policy on 27th April 2023. This policy will work at reducing the Authority’s carbon footprint, increasing the park’s resilience to climate change and maximising the environmental potential of the 10,000 acre “green lung” which is Lee Valley Regional Park.
Lee Valley Regional Park Authority recognises the current climate crisis and will constantly review its performance in this area.
Our first Environment Policy has now been adopted and can be read here.
The next stage of our journey will be through the guidance of our scrutiny committee we will develop further a Strategy and Action Plan which will become a working document that will be developed to a first set of proposals and actions over the next 12 months and then become our working action plan to monitor our performance.
Further updates on the development of this work stream will be published on this page as they happen.
