Our Commitment to the Environment

At Suntrap we provide memorable, first-hand experiences that educate and inspire; developing respect and understanding on ways to protect our planet. 

Our activities can have the potential for both positive and negative impacts upon the environment at local, national and global levels.

To protect our planet we'll reduce our carbon emissions, leading by example to promote positive environmental sustainability aspects of teaching and learning. We'll provide visitors with knowledge and skills to empower them to take action and make informed choices to use the world’s resources wisely and to make a positive contribution to improve their local area.
