A sustainable business park in south Bristol has officially been opened.

Called ‘Filwood Green Business Park’, it cost £12 million and includes solar panels, electric vehicle charging points, recycled furniture and low water use appliances.

The building materials are expected to reduce energy demand by 30% and carbon emissions by 40%.

It comes after Bristol was picked as the 2015 European Green Capital last year.

Mayor of Bristol George Ferguson said: “This project is a vital component of our year as Green Capital and provides a lasting legacy for the City, creating jobs by providing environmentally conscious businesses with workshop and office space to boost economic prosperity.”
