The natural resources of groundwater are used to supply drinking water to the site. The sewage tanks are used to treat all waste water on site. A wood chip burning boiler installed in 2007 is used to increase the utilization of renewable energy.

The impact of our activities on the environment is reduced by:

  • Selecting the best available technology for new projects
  • Operation of a sewage plant
  • Reducing waste through separation
  • Recovering maximum quantities of waste
  • Measuring emissions we generate
  • Minimising the use of non-renewable resources
  • Regular analysis of the environment
