Sustainable London Venues – Venue Search London
As one of the greenest capitals in the world, with over 3,000 parks and green spaces, London is one of the top cities globally for environmental sustainability. With that in mind, companies are keen to shift the focus onto making their meetings and events more sustainable than ever and London’s event venues have risen to the challenge with great green initiatives.
With sustainability high on the global agenda, there will no doubt be increasing pressure on organisations to bring this issue higher on their list of priorities when planning London conferences and events. Obviously, delivering some ongoing communications virtually will reduce the carbon impact of an annual event programme, but there are also a few easy ways to reduce the environmental impact of live events.
The most important factor of effective event planning will always be choosing the right venue. And if you’re looking for a venue that ensures your event is as sustainable as possible it’s important to ensure that the location you choose has established green credentials.
As sustainability takes an increasingly prominent place on venues’ priority lists, most of the best conference and event venues in London are committed to making your event as green as possible and are there to help.
Here are some quick tips to consider when choosing the right venue for your event:
Do they have a recycling station readily available?
What is their power sourcing /utilisation plan?
Do they have a water-efficient/water-saving policy in place?
Do they use smart zonal temperature controls?
Do they use low energy and LED event lighting?
Do they have an offset scheme in place?
Do they have the ability to support and deliver your sustainability goals at your event?

Sustainable event catering:
Of all the elements of your event, catering offers you the best chance of reducing the environmental impact of your event. Key to this is ensuring that the venue prepares and finishes the food in-house, since this reduces the carbon emissions from transporting food and staff to and from the event.
Mass food production, food wastage and the meat and dairy industries are some of the biggest contributors to global warming on the planet. So, when it comes to catering your next event, take these tips into consideration:
Source as much local produce as possible (food and drink)
Cut down on food waste by not over-ordering
Request fair trade or organic produce where available
Reduce or exclude meat from your menus
Avoid bottled water
Another very simple and easy step to take is to insist on avoiding the use of single-use plastic at events. Replace the cups with reusable glasses or compostable disposable cups. If your guests will also be eating at the event, then swap out the plastic disposable plates and cutlery for greener wooden cutlery and biodegradable plates.
Sustainable event planning tips
Offer hybrid options
One of the biggest challenges to making your event sustainable is the environmental impact of travelling to and from events. Start by trying to make the venue as accessible to public transport as possible. Ensuring your s venue has hybrid live streaming options will allow you to involve delegates from afar without the huge carbon cost of flying them into your event.
Going paperless doesn’t need to be difficult. Instead of swapping out plastic for paper, as many events do, why not get rid of both? By avoiding both paper and plastic, you’ll be well on your way to making your event more sustainable. Let’s start with tickets; do they need to be printed? Then think about other items; menus, flyers, lanyards, itineraries… You get the picture! Go digital!
Include sustainability messaging in your event
Lastly, if you have the capacity and ability, why not weave some sustainability messaging into your event? This could be done in the form of workshops, donations, or simply a section of the event that is dedicated to discussing a greener future for all. These messages will help to build global awareness of the challenges and opportunities that will need to be addressed over the coming years.
