Community Environmental Development
At the Selby Centre, we have established space for many environmental enterprises. The Selby Trust now recycles bikes, grows fruit and vegetables and stimulates the creative use of textiles. Together this helps achieve our triple bottom line – integrating green values with positive social and economic outcomes. In the future, we have plans to green the Selby Centre as part of a wider Selby Centre and Bull Lane site development by ensuring the new facilities deliver low carbon usage as a model of good practice.
• We aim to transform the environment at the Selby Centre by establishing space for environmental activities that make it a nicer place to be in. We attract and sell on office furniture affordably to community groups to avoid landfill, and improve energy efficiency.
• The Selby Trust now recycles bikes, grows fruit and vegetables with volunteer help, stimulates the creative use of textiles, and offers energy-saving advice.
• Together this helps achieve our triple bottom line – integrating green values with social and economic outcomes.
