ExCel London is now accredited as a carbon neutral and sustainable ground. The Royal Dock venue is bringing back the whole sustainability issue at the most important grounds. ExCel London is now awarded with PAS 2060 certification.
The achievement underlines a key milestone for the venue’s wider sustainability goals. The owners Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) is thus moving forward with the management development. ExCeL has already signed up for the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge. The gesture is part of committing the venue to a 50% emissions reduction by 2030, and to become fully net zero by 2050.
Amongst ExCeL’s benchmark sustainability practices include using 100% renewable electricity. This will offset any remaining gas, fuel, waste, water and employee commuting. The installation of water fountains can save 200,000 plastic bottles every year.
It has also operated a zero-waste-to-landfill policy for over a decade and houses the UK’s largest commercial wormery to create compost from food waste. London exCel has recently earned the ‘Triple Crown of Sustainability’ award. Last month, ExCeL has also offset all the travel emissions from those who attend the meetings show.
Excel London is the biggest convention centre that hosts some of the most important trade shows. The venue is extremely accredited and it manages most of the important travel shows. With sustainability taken as the primary goal to concentrate on ExCel London is likely to become the most important convention centre.
