Sustainability



The Foyer Aberdeen is a successful social enterprise working to support individuals in communities in the North East of Scotland. Established in 1995 in response to concerns about youth homelessness and unemployment, the Foyer has reached beyond its early focus and provides various services across the region. The Foyer helps people build confidence and develop their skills and talents to make major changes in their lives.

The Union Square team has supported The Foyer by carrying out mock interviews for people that are currently unemployed and preparing for their next opportunity and ultimately in becoming more self-sufficient

At Union Square we are working with Hammerson to reduce our environmental impact. 

Energy consumption
In 2017 we saved 12% on our energy consumption, which is equivalent to making over 15 million cups of tea.

Water consumption
In 2017 we saved 14% on our water consumption per visitor.

Recycling
In 2017 we recycled 87% of our waste. The rest was used for energy generation – we send nothing to landfill.

Our key projects in 2018 include:
* Continuing our rollout of the energy efficient LED replacement;
* Upgrading some of our car parking spaces to provide charging for electric vehicles; and
* Delivering entrepreneurship events such as Pop-Up Business, Teenage Market and Young Enterprise
