Gaining international recognition

By Chester Zoo

We were the first UK zoo, and only the second one in Europe, to be awarded ISO14001. The award is given to organisations that show a real commitment to looking after the environment. To receive this aware you need to prove you understand, and act on, big issues like using raw materials, energy, emissions, waste and transport.

And once you’ve got it, you can only keep it if you keep improving your environmental policy. So the fact we’ve got ours shows how dedicated we are.
