what we do ‘at a glance’

We recognise that what we can do to support our commitment evolves over time and as such we know we are on an ongoing journey of continual improvement across all of our venues, understanding our journey may never end! Here are just a few things of what we do across our business:

reuse and recycle

we will ensure only reusable and recyclable items are used in our day delegate or any other packages we offer.

responsible food

our food is responsibly sourced, local where possible and more than 50% plant based. Any spare food is offered to those in need including through our relationships with organisations such as Inside-2-Out in Birmingham and Too Good to Go in Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.

we bottle our water

we bottle our own still and sparkling water on site using reusable bottles, saving thousands of glass bottles per year from waste and transportation.

flexible working for our teams

we have a flexible working scheme allowing for home working where possible to reduce travel.

renewable energy

we are committed to renewable energy including using a 100% renewable electricity supplier.

reducing energy consumption

we are committed to the ongoing reduction of energy consumption through our renewal scheme, investing in more and more energy efficient equipment.

promoting public transport

we champion the use of public transport both for our teams and guests by ensuring all of our venues are within easy walking distance of major public transport hubs.

and the use of two wheels!

for those that want to go that bit further we also offer bicycle racks and storage to guests and staff in all locations.
