In the visitor experience we offer and across all areas of business practice, Shantytown has a commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
We endeavour to buy wisely, dispose of waste responsibly and seek ways to continually improve our environmental performance by ensuring we use no more resources than our business requires.
In addition to this we recognise the wider community value of many other organisations in our area, and actively work with them to share the business equipment, expertise and infrastructure that our unique attraction provides.
We are committed as an organisation and business to comply with relevant environmental legislation and regulations, as well as the requirements of various associations to which we subscribe through membership.
The value of our staff is recognised in terms of their expertise and innovation in the particular operating areas of Shantytown they work within. To this end their input and ideas are actively encouraged bolstering our commitment to sustainability and continuous improvement.
As a responsible Tourism operator, we focus on:
Reducing Energy consumed (oil, coal, electricity)
Lowering waste and by products of energy used
