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 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.
Our green roofs on our Terrace Gallery, Boardroom and Garden, as well as our rainwater harvesting system are just a few ways we are implementing further sustainable practices across the business. And when it comes to cleaning Sustainability is also an incredibly important part of our onsite catering operation.
Working closely with our catering partner Benugo, guests can be assured that 90% of our food is prepared and cooked onsite, and that all fruit and vegetables are sourced from within the UK throughout the year. Additionally, our coffee is 100% rainforest alliance accredited and is delivered in climate smart bags made from used sugar cane.
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, utilises 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.
