America Square Conference Centre (part of Cavendish Venues) proud to win Gold Award in the Circular Category – Clean City Awards Scheme. – March 21
Here at America Square Conference Centre we are delighted to have won this award. It reflects our own journey as we seek to move our conference venues beyond recycling to a more conscious focus on decoupling the link whereby whenever we grow, we increase our consumption of finite resources. We do this by designing waste out of our systems. Reusing and repurposing our capital goods and regenerating the natural systems around us.
Designing waste out of our systems: After many years of work in 1996 we were accredited as ‘zero to landfill’ see Here. We monitor all our major waste streams, i.e., water / electricity / gas / food waste etc. Reduction targets have been established and published.
Reusing and repurposing our capital goods: Because of the nature of our operations, we do not change our capital goods frequently, however when we do we reuse. In line with our zero to landfill targets for the past 3 years no goods have not been reused / repurposed i.e. old chairs have been repurposed as seats for a church in west London / computers etc are recycled / old phones are donated to charity / carpet tiles are recycled.
Regenerating the natural systems around us: We have instigated a major tree planting scheme, so far over 1000 trees have been planted see HERE
