ZSL wins two sustainability awards

ZSL has been awarded two accolades from The Sustainable City Awards 2013/2014, the UK’s foremost sustainability awarding body. ZSL was recognised for its work in Responsible Waste Management and Resource Consumption.

Since 2012, ZSL has made some significant achievements in sustainability. Currently working towards 99% landfill avoidance for 2016, both ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo currently recycle, reuse or compost 98% of waste.
