As a business, we aim to create retail destinations that deliver net positive impacts economically, socially and environmentally, through leading-edge design, operational efficiency and a culture of respect and responsibility.

At Dundrum Town Centre we are working with Hammerson to reduce our environmental impact.
We saved 12% on our gas consumption, which is equivalent to making 41,419,872 cups of tea!
We reduced our water consumption by 8%, equivalent to 4,9216 Olympic sized swimming pools!
We recycled 95% of our waste. The rest was used for energy generation – we send nothing to landfill.
In 2019 we will focus on:
• Reducing electricity consumption with improvements to our ventilation and lighting systems;
• Increasing recycling rates through improved operational controls; and
• Continuing to work with our partners to engage with educational facilities and develop work based skills.
Dundrum Town Centre currently has 6 beehives on site! Bees have experienced a huge decline in the past number of years and we are committed to giving them a home where they can have happy and healthy colonies. Honeybees play a vital role in our community so we have created a rich diversity of flowers and plants for them to feed on.
Dundrum Town Centre has built a Bug Hotel in our perennial garden which is providing a safe habitat for beneficial insects and pollinators. Our Bug Hotel is made from 100% recycled material. We do not use pesticides in any of our gardens which is giving these important creatures the best chance to thrive.
