New industrial park to lead on carbon and biodiversity

28th June 2024

SEGRO’s latest scheme will be carbon neutral and address both biodiversity and community engagement.

The industrial specialist has secured planning consent for the development of SEGRO Park Courier Road in Rainham, East London, with up to 310,500 sq ft of new industrial and logistics space on a 20 acre site.

SEGRO Park Courier Road will be carbon neutral, with each unit targeting an EPC A+ and BREEAM Outstanding rating overall. Sustainability features will include photovoltaic panels, LED lighting and EV charging powered by energy generated on site.

The company said it would use “sustainable methods of construction” to lower embodied carbon. Additionally, SEGRO will set aside approximately 20% of the site as safeguarded biodiverse natural habitat. 

As part of its Community Investment Plan in East London, SEGRO is working with local partners to promote social mobility, with mentoring, training and education.
