New Civil Engineer & Sustainability
We’re working harder to be better. It’s important that while we acknowledge our events are crucial for developing and enabling innovation and sharing best practice, we must do more together to reduce the impact we’re having on our environment.
That’s why we’re pleased to tell you all that the menu for the buffet lunch at this event will be 100% vegetarian/plant-based. Our signage and printed collateral will be made of 100% recycled materials and be 100% recyclable in itself. Our teams will be taking public transport to and from the venue.
We’re putting pressure on our suppliers and partners to be better and we hope you’ll join us on our journey by considering the environment when you attend our events.
Victoria Park Plaza & Sustainability
It is important to New Civil Engineer and emap Publishing that we hold our events and meetings in a sustainable way, and this extends to our choice of venue.
Victoria Park Plaza holds a Silver Award in the ‘Green Tourism Business Scheme’ category at the London Green Tourism Awards and have recently undertaken a number of initiatives to reduce their impact on the environment including:
- Removing single-use plastic cups for beverages at events, replacing with glass, paper and china cups.
- The chef and operations manager working together on full separation of food waste to reduce the landfill produced
- Separating waste properly to ensure the maximum amount is recycled
- Replacing the meetings and events lighting system, to save a total of 22,500 watts vs the old system
- Implementing an in-house water filtration system to cut down on glass bottle wastage (coming late-2020)
