Caring for the environment

Greener spaces make for better looking holiday snaps. We love green, natural space and fresh, clean air. That's why we're increasingly re-landscaping our parks with more open, grassy areas and trees. And don't forget that your family can also join our Wildlife Detectives sessions to learn more about local plants and wildlife. As proud members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the David Bellamy Nature Conservation Awards and the Wildlife Trust, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously.

Eco highlights

  • Reduce, re-use, recycle initiatives in place across all parks and head office
  • Water conservation - Toilet Hippos just one of the ways we reduce water consumption on parks
  • We recycled the equivalent weight of over 200 double decker buses in 2011
  • The carbon emissions we saved last year are equivalent to planting nearly 2 million trees

Haven for wildlife

Wildlife at Haven

Many of our parks are in areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) or Special Areas of Conservation (SAC). 15 of our parks have direct responsibility for protected areas and all parks play a vital role in protecting and conserving British wildlife.

Recycling at Haven

We’re particularly proud to work closely with the Green Tourism Business Scheme and the Wildlife Trust. And we’re always looking for things we can improve - such as giving our caravans better insulation to save energy. It all helps.
