Barbican Achieves Reduction In Energy Usage
Two London event campuses, the Barbican and the Guildhall School have demonstrated their commitment to the use of green energy by achieving a reduction of -4% and -15% in absolute year on year terms for their energy usage.
Anthony Hyde, head of corporate sales at Barbican said: “This is another milestone for us in our sustainability efforts. We work with the most up-to-date vision of energy and resource use, in order to minimise the impact on the environment and to promote sustainability and environmental awareness.”
The Barbican also introduced a comprehensive food waste composting programme involving their catering partners, which allows them to compost 100% of their food waste.
Earlier in the year, the venue was awarded the Chairman’s Cup for outstanding practices in waste management and recycling. It is also a regular winner of Platinum Clean City Award.
