In July 2021 Church House Westminster achieved the Platinum ECOsmart venue accreditation for sustainability, awarded by Greengage Travel and Events.

Grade II listed multi-purpose events venue, Church House Westminster, is committed to minimising and controlling the environmental impact of the venue’s operations. As such, sustainability is aligned with their business strategy in their goal to achieve net-zero carbon status by 2030.

Greengage Travel & Event Solutions’ ECOsmart is an industry-standard accreditation awarded to hotels, venues, and agencies that can demonstrate an environmentally conscious approach and adoption of eco-friendly measures.

New projects, for example, included the installation of waterless urinals last year, which subsequently saves the venue equivalent of three Olympic-sized swimming pools of water each year.

The venue has also updated its sustainability policy last year to include its commitment to achieving net-zero carbon status by 2030 and the steps to support this goal. Making great strides already, the venue has replaced all gas equipment with green energy appliances, donates all leftover food to the local community, and has adopted a zero waste to landfill process.

The events team promotes a 12-step action plan for sustainable events at Church House Westminster with organisers in the lead-up to events to keep the carbon footprint to a minimum.
