Are you looking for a London corporate events venue with green credentials? If your organisation takes its environmental responsibility seriously, you may wish to re-inforce your commitment to looking after our planet by holding your next business event at an eco-friendly event space. By choosing a conference venue with environmental credentials, your company image will be seen to be authentic – you practise what you preach.
You could tie in the choice of green venue with an environmental theme to your event – perhaps you’re organising a training seminar on how to be more sustainable in business, a media event on reducing the carbon footprint, or corporate team building around how to tackle recycling in the office or climate change at large? Whatever your green concerns may be, it is essential that you showcase your company’s environmental commitment by holding your corporate event in the right surroundings.
When looking for the perfect venue, give preference to hotels or other venues that have environmental responsibility as a top-down policy. There are very few completely sustainable venues in the UK, so you may need to compromise to find an event space that ticks all the boxes. And, of course, while you are searching for the ideal corporate venue that does everything possible to minimise its impact on the environment, you must not lose sight of all the other important criteria for selecting a suitable venue, including location, size, budget, configuration, facilities, style etc.
We’ve handpicked 3 stylish, eco-friendly conference venues in London that may be worth a closer look as a possible destination for your next green business event.
