Port Sunlight Plans For A Green Future

Port Sunlight Plans for A Green Future

This month Port Sunlight Village Trust (PSVT) is surveying village residents and local business owners to help understand what they currently think of sustainability and the value of reducing their use of the world’s finite resources.

Port Sunlight Village Trust is an independent charitable trust responsible for preserving and promoting the historic village. Set up by Unilever in 1999, the Trust works with Port Sunlight’s residents to create a self-sustaining village for all who live, visit and work there. Now they want to focus on making the village greener and protecting it for future generations.

PSVT commissioned TEP to create an Environmental Sustainability Strategy for all areas of the business, including the operation of the charity and village with its Conservation Area and many listed buildings. Its existing environmental policy states that the charity is committed to reducing its environmental impact year on year by improving the environmental performance of its activities, reducing the impacts to the environment from all areas of operation, and championing biodiversity and sustainability as part of its public programmes and management of the natural and designed heritage in its care. PSVT’s strategic plan and ten-year Conservation Management Plan also identified improved environmental sustainability as a significant aim for the charity and the village itself.

Although PSVT has worked towards improving environmental sustainability across the organisation, TEP is now working with them to deliver their first ever Environmental Sustainability Strategy. Guided by the existing policies and public response, the strategy will set out a series of goals for them to aspire and offer a strategic approach towards delivering their ten-year Conservation Management Plan.
