Sustainability - Mamhilad Park Estate Sustainability - Mamhilad Park Estate


Here at Mamhilad Park Estate, we are on a journey of continuous evolution that includes minimising our environmental impact.

All of our offices are classed as EPC grade ‘C’ status or better. We expect to achieve grade ‘B’ in advance of 2030. We have invested in a range of energy efficiency measures to reduce our carbon emissions.

With a long-term investment programme that revolves around community and the environment, our long-term goal is for the whole site to be net zero.

EV Charging Points

Installing EV charging points and implementing our own electric new vehicle policy.

Upgrading and Refurbishing

Upgrading and refurbishing the office suites with replacement LED lighting and new condensing boilers.

Reducing Waste

Reducing waste and recycling all waste cardboard. We will also shortly begin to recycle our wastewater.

Double-glazed Windows

Installing new double-glazed windows and adding energy efficient insulation.

Carbon Free Concrete

Using carbon free concrete that has been classified as carbon neutral having been offset through the acquisition of certified carbon credits in support of renewable energy and forestry protection projects.

Nurturing Nature

From bird boxes to bee hives, we take great pride in our natural environment. We even have our own nature trail.

Our commitment to sustainability applies to our approach to our local community, both on the site itself and in terms of the wider impact on the area of South Wales.

From raising funds for local charities to hosting carol concerts and wellbeing events, we work hard to forge good working relationships with our occupiers and the local community around us. We also have a procurement policy that means that we support local suppliers wherever possible. 

It is all about doing what we can to enhance our environment, health and well-being. We are proud to be making a difference. Here are a few examples:

The DuPont Dacron Nature Trail

In keeping with the picturesque location of Mamhilad Park Estate, we are proud to have recreated the one-kilometre-long original DuPont Dacron Nature Trail. This quiet, green space represents the perfect trail for a leisurely stroll during the day to reflect and relax. The walk starts to the rear of the onsite café and takes in some interesting focal points along the way, including the old water tower.

Space for well-being

Private and comfortable space coupled with our tranquil surroundings make Mamhilad an excellent choice for health and well-being practitioners who offer advice and support for both physical and mental health. From complementary therapists to physiotherapists, we have a growing community and actively welcome enquiries from other specialists who are interested in a base at Mamhilad.

Project nestbox – seeking new occupiers

Since we upgraded and reopened the one-kilometre-long original DuPont Dacron Nature Trail, we have also installed dozens of nestboxes, designed to encourage even more occupiers make Mamhilad Park Estate their permanent home.

Project Nestbox was led by a local conservationist, who advised on our latest creation of new spaces, albeit for a different type of clientele to the norm. He advised on the type of nestboxes to use, where to position them – and the type of wildlife they would attract. The project has made the nature trail even more appealing – the sound of woodland birdsong much louder because of this project.

Proud of our bees

We have partnered with specialist sustainable beekeepers Blorenge Mountain Bees to install two beehives on the roof-top of Brecon House. The bees were selectively bred from Blorenge Mountain Bees’ own stocks, which are hardy and productive with a high disease and varroa resistance. The introduction of bees to the site has driven other biodiversity and sustainability initiatives around the site, including our woodland walks and wildflower gardens. Bees are also one of the major pollinators, thus helping food security while contributing to the mitigation of climate change and environmental conservation. We may even make some honey!
