As an exhibition centre, ExCeL London has a number of initiatives to reduce its impact on the planet, recently earning the Triple Crown of Sustainability Award.

Natalie Sykes, ExCeL London’s sustainability manager, told OT: “As well as supporting five local charities, we have undertaken initiatives such as signing up to the Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge, committing us to achieve a 50% reduction in emissions by 2030.

“What’s more, all our electricity is 100% renewable, we have a zero-waste to landfill policy and even house the largest UK wormery, recycling leftover food products into fertiliser.

“Our vision is to be a sustainability leader within our industry,” Sykes said, as well as inspiring others to “play their part.”
