Sustainability is at the heart of what they do at the award-winning BDC. They prioritise that which is most important: their people, their community – both locally and across the industry – and the planet.
Sustainability is vital to everyone at the BDC. As an events venue, they are in a unique position of being able to reach huge numbers of people in a short space of time as they pass through the venue and they intend to use this position for good.
They are proud to be recognised for their efforts as they put their values into action. Out of the many awards they have gained at the BDC, winning the Exhibition News Corporate Social Responsibility Award in 2018 and 2019 are two that they are most proud of.
They have taken many steps in improving sustainability and more specifically our environmental impact at the BDC. For more than ten years, the venue has been carbon neutral. They send zero waste to landfill and they also use 100% renewable energy to power the building, offsetting any carbon generation they cannot avoid.
