Our aim

To improve the environment in Liverpool Town Hall and St George's Hall by managing the operations and its environmental impact, and identifying and implementing an Environmental Management System to manage those impacts that are most significant.

We will provide appropriate environmental training where possible and applicable for employees at the City Halls. We will also consult our staff as widely as possible on new environmental activities and encourage their active involvement wherever we can.

Contractors and suppliers
