Business Pleasure

We're a sustainable city

In line with Peel L&P’s sustainability five year business plan we continually strive to meet the current needs of our businesses and stakeholders while future proofing our developments and activities in a sustainable way at TraffordCity and beyond.

Sustainable workspaces

Our anchor commercial office block Venus is one of the first in the country to be independently verified as Net Zero Carbon using the UK Green Building Council’s definition. BREEAM ‘very good’ places the building in the top 25% of UK non-domestic buildings for environmental performance.

Peel L&P created the first ‘green roof’ building in TraffordCity at Kids Allowed childcare centre, which also achieved an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate.

The Venus building operates the ISO 50001 Energy Management system with EventCity working towards ISO20121 sustainable event management certification.

EventCity, Venus and Holiday Inn Express have 100% waste diverted from landfill and is either recycled or goes into energy recovery.

There is a destination wide commitment to increase in EV charging points.
