Corporate Responsibility

We are currently working closely with our waste contractors regarding how we can recycle more efficiently throughout the Centre. We have also recently taken on a new environmental policy officer to continue with developing on this area.


In February 2019 the roof of the National Space Centre got an exciting make over and it is now home to over 700 solar panels. The solar energy will directly power the running of the Space Centre, generating approximately 174,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually, and saving 67,000 kilograms of carbon.
