Green Parks Plan
The Green Parks Plan (GPP) articulates an overarching vision that will make everything we do more sustainable by establishing environmental performance targets, empowering staff to be agents of change, collaborating with stakeholders, and engaging millions of visitors to support this effort during visits and while at home. We can all make a difference!
