Our Impact

The UK Leisure Framework seeks to deliver positive effects in every aspect possible. This ranges from community benefits, to our environmental impact, and to our commitment to charities.

Community Benefits

Our aim is to ensure that we consider and maximise the social value and beneficial impact that we bring to both the projects we deliver and the communities in which we work.
 
Underpinning this commitment, we commit to the following when approaching projects:
 
  • Assess local needs: we begin by conceptualising the project, aligning it with current and future users through a process of needs analysis. We are familiar, for example, with the workings of the Sport England Strategic Outcomes Planning Guidance and have supported this thematic mapping on numerous projects
  • Engaging stakeholders: we are committed to supporting the engagement process pre-construction and post-project completion
  • Developing community partnerships: we aim to work with our clients to involve the community in setting project objectives and targets, and feeding back on whether they have been delivered
  • Delivering measurable social value: we are committed to measuring the social value created across all ALS activities and, where appropriate, in agreement with our clients using the National Themes Outcomes and Measures (TOMs) Framework.

Environmental Sustainability

In recognition of the climate emergency that we are currently facing, the UK Leisure Framework has a number of activities, systems, and commitments in place in order to reduce the impact of our projects on the environment. 
 
Public sector providers are playing a key role in cutting greenhouse gas emissions ahead of the government’s 2050 target by committing to strategic projects to decarbonise their activities through targeted investment in equipment and infrastructure. We are championing this approach to achieve the Net Zero Carbon Strategy.
 
Many of the UK’s sports and leisure centres were built in the 1970s and are extremely energy inefficient, generating high carbon emissions. Any improvements we make to these sites will have a significant impact on local sustainability targets. For example, we are  currently working with Hambleton District Council to reduce carbon emissions across three leisure centres in Northallerton, Stokesley, and Bedale.

As part of offsetting our carbon footprint for every project we will purchase trees to be planted by EFORESTS. Appointed Development Partners, Alliance Leisure, 
 
Finally, within our projects, sustainable design and build initiatives typically include the following in respect to our approach to managing environmental performance and sustainability:
  • Carbon

  • Water

  • Waste

  • Materials

  • Ecology and biodiversity

  • Environmental impact

  • Transport and mobility
