CentrEd at ExCeL is 100% committed to tackling the challenges of sustainable development and operating as a responsible corporate entity.
As part of one of the UK’s leading international exhibition and convention centres, we host a diverse range of events with organisers and visitors from across the globe. Looking after the environment, our local community and our corporate responsibilities help us make CentrEd a better place to learn.
It is our policy to continuously evolve and implement practices that deliver economic security, social and environmental benefits. We are committed to tackling the challenges of sustainable development and operating as a responsible corporate business. Sustainability and CSR are important parts of our strategy and day-to-day activity.
We maintain and operate our sustainability management systems to comply with both ISO20121 and ISO14001. Our corporate CSR strategy focuses on three key areas; reducing waste, increasing energy efficiency and persuading our clients to participate in our objectives. Our key statistics speak for themselves:
- 300,000 worms are kept in our on-site wormery where all our food waste is diverted to. It produces a soil additive which we use around the venue to keep our greenery looking flourishing.
- 0% is our goal for zero waste to landfill. Our designated bins located in all the meeting rooms and at the Reception are helping us to reach our goal.
- 2 local projects are funded by us: Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) and Community Food Enterprise (CFE). Having a positive impact on the local community is important to us.
Do you want to do something to help our efforts? Did you know that “turning off unneeded lights could remove 171 kg (376 lb) of CO2 emissions per year*”? Perhaps a conscious effort to turn off unnecessary office and home lights will continue to bring about change.
