Westquay is a Hammerson-operated shopping centre. 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. By 2030 we will be a Net Positive company for carbon, resource use, water and socio-economic impacts.

At Westquay we are working with Hammerson to reduce our environmental impact.
Since installation in August 2016, the Westquay photovoltaic solar cells have generated enough electricity to power 5,548,608 cups of tea.
In 2017 we saved 64% more water than the previous year on our water consumption, equivalent to over four Olympic pools!
In the past year, we have increased our recycling rate by 36%, now recycling 55% of waste. The rest is used for energy generation – we send nothing to landfill
Our key projects in 2018 include:
· Increasing the number of photovoltaic solar panels at Westquay.
· Installing more energy efficient LED lighting in the centre.
· Increasing the biodiversity of the external area of Westquay, with bird boxes and an insect hotel install in The Swale.
