SUSTAINABILITY AND CSR
A SUSTAINABLE MINDSET ACROSS THE BOARD FROM THE SMALLEST GESTURES TO THE MOST AMBITIOUS INITIATIVES
THE ENTIRE TEAM AT THE VALENCIA CONFERENCE CENTRE IS ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE
We have stepped up our environmental commitment by bringing all our actions into line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to:
• Ensure access to affordable, clean energy.
• Help move Valencia’s smart city strategy forward.
• Put in place emergency measures to combat climate change and its impact.
• Ensure sustainable usage and production and invest in infrastructure to deliver sustainable development.
- 2,100modules installed on photovoltaic panels
- 3.2 million kWh of energy generated since it was installed.
These initiatives run alongside the others in our SDG Project which is founded on a commitment to excellence, quality and environmental stewardship. 40% of our investment is sustainable.
In recognition of the work we have done in sustainable investment, the Centre has earned the highest level of CO2 emission reduction in the building’s energy certification. A crucial role is played in this by its rooftop photovoltaic panels, which have generated over 3.2 million kWh since they were installed in 2008.
Our building now sparkles with LED technology.
We have a smart lighting system in place which means we can control our lights point by point using an app from any device whether a mobile, tablet or PC. This delivers enhanced comfort for our delegates who are increasingly looking for sustainable experiences at events with the lowest environmental impact.
Our building is also fitted with an electronic control system for facilities, water flow sensors and purifiers, state-of-the-art HVAC equipment and a green recycling centre.
The certification comes in addition to the other environmental accreditations we have already achieved: ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and BREEAM® ES.
