As hives of human activity, we have a big part to play when it comes to sustainability.
Over the last year, we have made a conscious effort to introduce a number of initiatives across our events department to ensure our impact on the environment is reduced to an absolute minimum.
We are proud that, for the first time, the Museum of London Docklands now has 0% of waste going to landfill. We have reduced our printed material, increased our recycling rate to 52% and use only sustainable, reusable promotional material. In addition to this, we are currently in the process of changing all building lights to LED in both the galleries and back of house areas, which will minimise our consumption of electricity. The building also has Voltage Optimisation (running on 220v instead of 240v), which will contribute to a reduction in energy use too.
Being sustainable and reducing our impact on the environment requires action from every one and we actively encourage our partners and clients to avoid needless printing, to use energy saving lightbulbs, and utilise accredited, ethical suppliers. Even the products our cleaning company DOC Cleaning Limited utilise are environmentally friendly. It all makes a difference and we look forward to continuing to work with new and repeat clients to help protect the environment.
