WE'RE THINKING ABOUT EVENTS DIFFERENTLY
OUR SOCIAL VALUE IMPACT PLAN
We want to be a venue that strives to do the right thing and contributes to society, creating a positive social, economic and environmental impact in everything we do.
That’s why we’ve created a Social Value Impact Plan, a series of touchstones that we will hold ourselves accountable to, strive to support, achieve and challenge ourselves against. They are unique to us, deliverable and rooted in who we are and the things we care about most.

We are proud to be the first large venue to become members of isla, who we will be working with to share best practice and provide guidance and training to support the our journey towards Carbon Net Zero 2050.
We have also achieved the Green Meetings Silver Award.

We want to deliver real impact and action, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, playing our part in the global fight against climate change.
On a local level we want to be a beacon for sustainability and to ensure we offset any negative impact our events and operations may have on the local environment.
Our Hometown means the world to us and our reason for being is to positively impact the lives of our local community.
We want that impact to be more than economic, we also want to deliver positive impact through procurement, education, wellbeing and inclusion.
We need a workforce that reflects our community and celebrates diversity.
A workforce who can thrive in their careers and in their lives with the help of the positive impact we have on their learning and their health and wellbeing.
Through new procurement policies and influence on our supply chain, we want to increase the footprint of our positive impact as far as we can.
We are committed to delivering responsible procurement, embedding social value criteria in to our relationships with our suppliers and service partners.
