IMG_0207We’re always coming up with clever ways to do our bit for the environment here at HIC and we are very proud of the technologies we have employed.

We’re particularly proud of Halls G & H, our two newest exhibition spaces which use rainwater, filtered through our sedum roof, to flush the loos. Our super-efficient heating system also means we are saving the atmosphere from 1400 tonnes of CO2 every year and we are well on the way to achieving our target of a BREEAM ‘outstanding’ rating.

But it’s not just our newest spaces which have the greenest technology; we’re pleased to say our Edwardian Royal Hall theatre gets a Grade A Display Energy Certificate rating.

We recycle 1000kg of office paper every year and we make sure that every little bit of waste which can be recycled is recycled and that means more than 90 per cent of waste generated by our events is not getting dumped in landfill.
