Wyboston Lakes Resort forms new energy partnership as latest major sustainability initiative

To increase energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint as part of the strong commitment to its sustainability strategy, Wyboston Lakes Resort has partnered with The Energy Check, specialists in minimising energy usage costs and CO2 in a variety of businesses including stadia and leisure venues.

The Energy Check will conduct an extensive review of energy usage across the 380-acre conference, training and leisure complex to reduce energy consumption and emissions and introduce alternative energy sources and renewable technologies. This will support Wyboston Lakes ‘2020 Green Objectives’ initiative, which includes substantially reducing its carbon footprint by 50 per cent by 2025 and continuing its ‘Zero waste to landfill’ promise.

Louisa Watson, Director of Marketing at Wyboston Lakes Resort, said: “We have been working extremely hard on our sustainability strategy and this new partnership with The Energy Check will help to further strengthen our mission. It will support us in implementing meaningful change to enhance our energy efficiency and cut our carbon footprint.”

This move follows Wyboston Lakes Resort’s Gold Status accolade in last year’s Green Tourism Awards, which is a national sustainable tourism certification scheme for the UK & Ireland.
Millwall FC, Blackburn Rovers FC and QPR FC, alongside Newbury racecourse, Oxford Playhouse and Poole Arts Trust are amongst The Energy Check’s many large sports and leisure venue clients.
David Winton, CEO of The Energy Check said: “We are delighted to have entered a long-term partnership with Wyboston Lakes Resort. Wyboston Lakes Resort is the type of customer that we love to work with, with sustainability and energy efficiency high on their agenda. Over the coming years we can demonstrate our extensive skills in energy project management and consultancy, working towards our shared goals of reducing energy costs, consumption and emissions with a number energy technology projects.”
