LSO St Luke’s is a member of the Islington Climate Change Partnership, a group of public, private and voluntary sector organisations committed to reduce the economic, environmental and social of their work by cutting carbon emissions across this thriving London Borough. As a venue, we developed an environmental policy that forms part of the London Symphony Orchestra’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, outlining our efforts to…
- ensure our business practices are ethically, socially and environmentally aware;
- minimalise our impact on the environment by reducing waste and emissions;
- encourage these aspirations among staff, suppliers, patrons, clients and partners.
At the 2009 Sustainable Events Summit, delegates were challenged to take away 50 top tips for making their events more sustainable. We really enjoyed the day and thought many of the ideas where so useful we would share them with you.
Sustainability isn’t easy. Shared knowledge and experience are extremely important in developing sound business practices that will take us forward into a world of greener events. On our journey so far we have been fortunate enough to work with a number of excellent organisations in the arts, meetings and events industries, and in the public sector.
