For Sustainability

Encouraging our business community to share our values

We welcome and support businesses and talent that believes in environmental sustainability and innovation

As an Enterprise Zone with a clear vision for the future and the generations to come, we encourage smart, sustainable transport, a high build quality across all new developments and the adoption of low carbon operations. We also support strong engagement with the community we live and work in.

We’re challenging ourselves to find new ways to use sustainable measures by creating a framework that includes:

1.
A commitment to sustainable, high-quality development through building rating schemes and certification across construction.
2.
A reduction in energy demand through new infrastructure delivery and building design.
3.
A reduction in the use of energy and resources by incorporating renewable and low carbon energy, along with high-quality buildings of sustainable design, materials and build methods.
4.
Leading the development of sustainable travel measures for Hertfordshire IQ and Maylands Business Park.
5.
Encouraging future proofing of highways infrastructure to make sure there is flexibility to adopt emerging low carbon and digital transport and technology.
6.
Harnessing the natural assets of the area to create a highly desirable and sustainable place with high-quality landscaping of public areas and native species planting.
7.
Maintaining and enhancing the high-quality biodiversity of existing green and blue areas and corridors where they contribute to people’s enjoyment and wellbeing.
8.
Creating an external environment that stimulates business communities to network and collaborate for mutual benefit.
