Olympia launches sustainability reports service

Olympia London has issued sustainability reports for two UBM Live events, eCommerce Expo and Customer Contact Expo, as part of its new service for event organisers, designed to help them achieve sustainability targets and certification.
 
The reports provide a breakdown of gas, electricity and water usage, waste and recycling. The information can be used to calculate greenhouse gas emissions.
 
Data from Olympia London’s new online vehicle booking system, such as time and distance taken to reach the venue, was also included giving a holistic report that takes in financial as well as environmental factors.
 
Siân Richards, acting Sustainability Advisor at Olympia London said: “We’re delighted to launch our sustainability reports service for events with the first reports issued. Olympia believes this studied and committed approach to reporting for each event as a complimentary service is something the industry lacks and needs. We’re now keen to work with more organisers – anyone who wishes to receive a sustainability report for their event should let their event manager know.”
 
Allison Ozero, Sustainability Manager at UBM Live, said: “Olympia’s sustainability reporting forms a significant part of our own monitoring and measuring requirements, which are necessary for us to understand our impact and work towards continual improvement. As this information is imperative in order to help us measure the impact of our event, the added value of Olympia providing this report ensures consistency in data capture and increased efficiency.”
 
The recent installation of LED lights at Olympia Grand, Olympia National and Olympia Conference Centre, the venue estimates, will save upwards of 20 tonnes of carbon emissions each year. Olympia London was also re-certified with the ISO20121 in November.
