London’s oldest, and most iconic, conference and exhibition centre wanted to become a sustainability leader and show that its operations were environmentally responsible. But how do you mitigate your environmental impact when you host a packed programme of changing events? Holding 80 major exhibitions and 250 conferences annually means that the Business Design Centre (BDC) works with new clients every year and does not have total control of its carbon footprint. In order to establish a carbon reduction programme it worked with The CarbonNeutral Company to be the UK’s first CarbonNeutral® venue. In addition to managing energy consumption and waste where possible, the offset programme has ensured the venue takes responsibility for all its emissions and has a net zero footprint.
