Central London conference and events venue, BMA House has been awarded a Gold Rating in the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the highest standard of sustainability.
Sarah Franczak, Head of Events at BMA House, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have achieved a Gold Rating in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Here at BMA House, green is at the heart of everything we do.
“In the past year alone we have organised a variety of internal events to encourage everyone to be more green, and increased our efforts to reduce paper usage in our events. Sustainability and safe guarding the environment will continue to be a strong focus for us in 2018 and beyond.”
Stuart Park, Lead Assessor at Green Tourism said: “BMA House is a very deserving recipient of the Green Tourism Gold award. A huge part of the award is down to the effort of the Green Team, helping to raise awareness while reducing energy, water and waste from a challenging, older building.
“A Healthy Meeting package is offered to delegates which is a nice touch, linking in perfectly with the rich history of the organisation and of the building, but also looking forward, in giving delegates more sustainable and healthier meeting choices for the busy, working life.”
