We are proud to announce that Brean Splash Waterpark was awarded a Gold Standard award for Energy Efficiency and EcoPool project of the year at the prestigious 2020 UK Pool and Spa awards.
In December 2019 we installed 900 solar panels to the roof at Brean Splash. This is used in combination with our biomass heating to provide off- grid electricity to keep our pools and surroundings at a perfect temperature for our swimmers. In 2018/19 these two off grid energy sources produced over 600,000kW of renewable energy, this prevented 130 tonnes of carbon being released into the atmosphere if fossil fuel grid electricity had been used instead.
In 2021 we have great plans to further improve our environmental credentials. We will be increasing our recycling rate to at least 50% across the whole wider holiday resort and by the end of the year and our goal is to be zero to Landfill by 2022. We are also introducing an extensive energy saving and operational efficiency ‘Green Plan’ across the site, targeting a 10% decrease in energy use in a year while reviewing all other areas of our business to ensure we are putting in place strategies to make sure the Resort has the least environmental impact possible while also running our business efficiently.
This along with many other exciting sustainability and conservation projects makes Brean Splash Waterpark and our wider business operations at Brean Leisure Park and Holiday Resort Unity, not only a fantastic place to visit, but also a destination that you can trust to minimise its impact on the environment to keep ‘Brean Green’ for future generations to enjoy as much as you do.
Sarah House, Director commented ‘It is important more than ever we recognise the impact of the environment and put in controls and measures to protect it for future generations. We are very proud to receive our Gold Award and be at the forefront of new green initiatives for the future. This year we are also looking to develop our team’s awareness in sustainability and how they can play their part both at work and in their personal life in reducing their carbon foot print.
