Horticultural Halls win green certifications

The Royal Horticultural Halls and Conference Centre
(RHH) has won two environmental accolades for green meetings
facilities.

The Grade II listed venue now meets the ISO 14001
Environmental Standard and the BS 8901 specification for a Sustainability
Management System for Events.

In the last three years, the RHH has concentrated on
improving its green offering. New policies include minimising waste, locally
sourcing produce and using energy generated from burning non-recyclable
waste.

“Given our listed status, this is a real accomplishment
for us,” said RHH sales and event manager Sylvana Malachias. “Historically, the
events business has been perceived as wasteful, but these standards give the
industry something to work towards and ultimately highlight the positive social
impact of events.”
