Lancaster University Conferences and Events+ awarded with the ECOsmart Gold Accreditation
Lancaster University Conferences and Events+ are delighted to announce that we have been awarded with a gold accreditation by the industry’s ECOsmart scheme run by Greenage Solutions.
The ECOsmart scheme recognises eco-friendly hotels and conference venues that facilities and services meet high standards of sustainability.
The gold accreditation highlighted many great initiatives that Lancaster University Conferences and Events+ have put in place to ensure sustainability is at the forefront of what we do including our provision of locally-sourced food, innovation to reduce the need for paper, our greener delegate commuting scheme and creative use of green areas to offer tree planting team activities.
Our “Edible Campus” EcoHub was another initiative which was highlighted a community farming initiative that provides a unique event experience to conference delegates. And, not forgetting the drive to minimise carbon footprint, Lancaster University have their own on-site wind turbine, capable of generating up to 20% of annual electricity consumption.
