From conception to operation, Unity Place follows a strong sustainability ethos. At its heart, Unity Place has been intentionally designed to support the health and well-being of its occupants, and to make it easier for all our visitors to make ‘planet-friendly' choices.

Carbon footprint

We use best-quality seasonal ingredients sourced responsibly from local suppliers, eliminating unnecessary food miles and supporting the local economy. 

At Unity Place we support Milton Keynes Council’s ‘Get Around MK’ initiative to promote sustainable travel for our city that’s smarter, healthier, and greener. We are within 200m of Milton Keynes Central train station, we have secured cycle parking and electric vehicle charging points for building users. 

Active travel includes walking, running and cycling. Milton Keynes has over 200 miles of shared-use paths, known as Redways. This traffic-free network covers most of the city estates with some Redways extending out to connect to the older towns. A network of 13 Redway Super Routes closely follows the grid roads across the city centre creating direct routes for cycle commuters. 

Bring your own bicycle to Unity Place, or hire a Santander cycle by registering online with the Nextbike app. Then it’s as easy as tapping your smartphone at a dock to get cycling.

Sustainability 1 (Carbon Footprint)


The building runs on green energy, provided via air-sourced heat pumps and heat exchangers. 

The rooftop holds over 400 PV solar panels for the building’s cooling and heating needs, reducing grid power consumption and offsetting 40 tonnes of CO2 per year.

We have closed-loop recycling on-site to minimise waste. 

We also work with our suppliers and partners to reduce packaging and single-use plastics, prioritising biodegradable options.

We understand how precious water is and have taken steps to minimise the amount of mains water through collecting all rainwater on the rooftop. This water is reused and recycled for necessities such as flushing toilets and watering plants.

We choose our partners because their ethos of caring for people and the environment aligns with ours. They believe in giving back as much as we do.  

Unity Place is on track to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for its environmental performance, which is a world-leading, science-based certification for sustainably built buildings with over 100 years of building science and research.
