We’re over the moon to announce that we have been awarded a prestigious International CSR Excellence Award for Sustainability.
We understand that the conference and events industry has a direct impact on the local, regional, and global environment. Therefore, as a conference venue we recognise the importance of operating in a sustainable way and we pride ourselves on our commitment to environmental responsibility. Sustainable business practices are embedded into everything we do, and we are thrilled to be recognised with this international award.
At 99 City Road here in Central London, 100% of our waste is diverted from landfill. We operate sustainability schemes across the business and that ensure everyone is engaged and supporting our efforts. We’ve recently introduced a scheme to drastically reduce our usage of paper coffee cups, plastic cups, and bottles by replacing them with recyclable versions; this has saved 26,559 coffee cups and 66,000 plastic cups.
Each and every member of our team is actively encouraged to get involved and encouraged to provide new solutions to help reduce our environmental impact. Our assistant manager, Charlotte Kain, has been recognised for her tenacity in implementing socially-conscious initiatives like the partnership with food-sharing platform Olio. This partnership enables us to share surplus food with our local community whilst dramatically reducing our food waste, and is just the latest example of our commitment to sustainability which you can learn more about here.
The International CSR Excellence Awards ceremony takes place here in London on the 22nd July, and we’re looking forward to celebrating our sustainability success with our team and peers.
