ENVIRONMENT

As a company providing green event planning we are conscious of fulfilling our own social responsibility. To that end; in addition to offering innovation for clients in effective and measured green event planning. We also operate a number of our own green initiatives, including recycling and waste disposal, energy efficiency and car share schemes for employees. In line with our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard certification, we focus on our own business operations to make a difference.

Directors Chris Peacock and Andrew Deakin have been keen to ensure that the company is at the heart of the local community through their own charitable activities and striving for improvements in our internal systems and procedures. Conference Care was an early adopter of IS014001 and became accredited in 2006. More recently the company has again stepped up the pace in its Corporate Social Responsibility practices. An Environmental Working Group was set up in 2006 to address a wide range of corporate and green event planning challenges.

We believe that while in comparison to other companies we do not have a large environmental impact, we are committed to leading by example and offering our customers innovative and pioneering green event planning solutions relevant to the events industry.

Conference Care has encouraged our employees to commit to the environment and the local community since the beginning of the company in 1995. Since this time, a number of initiatives have taken place including:

  • All office paper and stationery purchased is 100% recycled
  • Conference Care corporate brochures, stationary and business cards are produced from 100% post consumer waste products
  • Paper, card, plastic and aluminium recycling processes in place
  • New print policies put into place, and working towards a paperless workplace
  • Car sharing scheme successfully implemented
  • Cistern water displacement systems in place
  • Switched to environmentally friendly office cleaning products
  • Screened suppliers to assess their environmental impact and compliance with our environmental policies
  • Switched to Green tariffs for all utilities
  • Support of our nominated charities through sponsored events
  • Recognised for our Venue Sustainability Rating (VSR) project - the first and still the only of its kind in the industry, demonstrating that we are at the cutting edge of the events industry.

Conference Care are a pleasure to work with. They have helped us source each of our conference venues plus various venues for our larger events. We are a charity and have to stick to smaller budgets but Conference Care always try to provide options for us. All the ladies who Iíve dealt with have always been so lovely and Iíve never had to chase them for anything which is such a joy! Conference Care really do seem to care about their clients and this definitely shone through at this event.
