At BMA House, we place sustainability at the heart of everything we do. From plastic and paper-free events to locally sourced produce for catering, we ensure every aspect of our venue is as kind to the planet as possible, whilst ensuring our events are always exceptional.
Sustainability to us is a way of life. We aim to lead and promote a sustainable lifestyle for every client, supplier and employee, encouraging carbon balancing and water neutralising in events. As part of an ongoing drive to maximise sustainability, we have reduced our delegate carbon footprint by 69% over the last four years, whilst reducing water usage by 5.4 million litres per year.
Go green for Gold!
Our teams have worked tirelessly to achieve a Gold accreditation with Green Tourism, no mean feat for a Grade II listed building. This prestigious certification was awarded for our inspirational environmental ethos and excellent practices throughout the business. We’re continuously required to provide evidence of new initiatives to retain this level, ensuring environmental impact is top of our agenda.
Other sustainability awards include ‘Greenest Venue’ by Hire Space in 2018 and 2019, ‘Most Sustainable Venue’ by the London Summer Event Show in 2019, and a Silver award for ‘Best CSR or Sustainability Initiative’ at the 2019 London Venues Awards. We still have a way to go before we’re fully sustainable but choose BMA House as your venue for your next event and you’ll expect to find upgraded PIR and LED based lighting, digital way-finding signage, water saving devices on toilets, sustainable and locally sourced food ingredients, catering partners who support fair trade tea and coffee growers, recycled paper for your flip charts, plentiful paper recycling units in all meeting rooms, plus onsite cycle racks for those travelling by bike.
Our passion for food is evident across all menus; we support healthy events with your delegates’ wellbeing at the forefront of all menu planning. Our talented chefs have created mindfully nutritious menu concepts which focus on sustaining concentration and nourishing delegates with wholesome food.
Clean air walking route
We’ve partnered up with Cross River Partnership to promote a ‘Clean Air Walking Route’ from Kings Cross to provide delegates with a ‘cleaner’ journey to BMA House. The route takes guests off the busy Euston Road onto backstreets where air pollution is 57% lower.
