Dr Paul Golby, Chief Executive of E.ON UK, officially opened the new E.ON Business Centre at BT Convention Centre, part of ACC Liverpool, today (Tuesday 7th September) demonstrating the growth of E.ON's relationship with ACC Liverpool since becoming the venue's energy provider in 2008.
The venue's Business Centre has been completely refitted and refurnished and is now equipped with a full range of business facilities as well as a new Netpod comprising of 14 energy efficient high speed internet desktops, designed to enhance communications and increase productivity for delegates and clients at conferences and exhibitions.
Dr Paul Golby said: "Buildings currently account for over 40% of the UK's total carbon emissions so it's really important that homes and businesses up and down the country become more energy efficient.
"ACC Liverpool is a living example of how things can be done as well as an exciting showcase for others using the facility. We're proud to lend our support and name to the facility."
E.ON has assisted ACC Liverpool in its drive to become one of Europe's most sustainable venues by helping to reduce carbon emissions. ACC Liverpool has laid down a 'greenprint' for corporate social responsibility amongst its competitors with ground-breaking design and build and a focus on continually improving its CSR standing in the local, national and international community.
Bob Prattey, CEO of ACC Liverpool said: "Communications is a key word for the meetings and events sector, providing real-time event news, facilitating a ceaseless flow of information and ensuring delegates can respond to their business needs. We are excited by the strengthening of our partnership with E.ON and look forward to seeing the E.ON Business Centre in action as a next generation work station."
