We are proud to say that the Sustainability in Tech Summit will take place at BAFTA, a venue which created a sustainable environment at the core of the redevelopment of BAFTA 195 Piccadilly and our designers worked tirelessly to ensure the building is as sustainable as possible.
>> A building management system that utilises the light and heat from the rooflight structures to heat and cool the building
>> High efficiency heat pumps to deliver to only those areas in use
>> Greater levels of insulation Reductions in carbon emissions
>> All systems exceeding the building regulations energy efficient benchmarks
Computing is committed to the journey in becoming more sustainable by using the guidelines set out by Ecovadis and we will be working towards the accreditation. The goal is to reduce paper consumption across events and improve recycling rates, curb food waste and alter menus with an aim to include locally sourced, organic produce. We have also committed to deliver carbon offsetting at events wherever possible and provide delegates with accessible venues. We will be closely evaluating each event and considering how we can improve in the following areas; energy, transport, water usage, recycling, economic and local environment/community.
The Channel Company have partnered with Ecosphere+ to ensure all our remaining greenhouse gas emissions are offset. Working with Ecosphere+, we calculate the emissions from all our events, including those from event operations, venues and delegates. We then purchase the equivalent number of carbon offset credits to counter-act our activities. These credits are supporting the protection of vital rainforest in Peru, by funding conservation work and creating sustainable sources of income for locals to minimise incentives for deforestation.
