Here at EventCity, we are committed to sustainability. We put economic investment, environmental responsibility and communities at the heart of everything we do. As a sustainable event organiser, we understand that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is increasingly important to organisations, so we will deliver your event in line with your sustainability goals and CSR aspirations.
We are currently ISO 50001 compliant and are striving to be operating a sustainable event management system compliant with ISO 20121. We have also been awarded Silver for Green Tourism - an award which recognises the commitment of tourism businesses which are actively working to become more sustainable.
Additionally, we work on local projects in partnership with TraffordCity, the intu Trafford Centre, MediaCityUK and Quays Culture to enable our environment to flourish and prosper.
100% of waste has been diverted from landfill in 2018/19. We have separate recycling streams for cardboard, wood, glass, batteries and fluorescent tubes. We also use compostable Vegware throughout the business which is collected with our food waste stream – radically reducing the amount of single-use plastic on-site. All part of our sustainable future planning.
We always recommend sustainable options for reaching our venue: the correct bus, walking, and cycling routes. The new Metrolink Trafford Park Line tram connection will be completed in 2020, making it even easier to get to us.
EventCity is all on one level. We have exceptional disabled facilities, parking spaces and drop-off points. We understand that thousands of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other disabilities that severely limit mobility, cannot use accessible toilets. That’s why we have invested in ‘Changing Places’ toilets which provide a large space with a bench and a hoist, allowing carers or family members to provide the support needed.
We are proud to take a leadership position on issues, chairing the Trafford Impact Group which brings together local businesses, sports facilities, retailers and emergency services to share information on footfall and traffic movement and manage congestion together.
