Environmental Policy

The King’s Fund and No. 11 Cavendish Square are fully committed to reducing their impact on the environment and as such we have adopted the following approach across all of our events.

The Venue

  • We have an Environmental Impact Group which reviews our environmental performance
  • The venue is accessible to all
  • The venue is accessible to all and there is disabled parking close by

Transportation

  • The venue is well located for public transport
  • The venue has a cycle storage facility available on site
  • The options for sustainable public transport are well publicised on event material and our website

Waste Management

  • The venue does not use disposable cups, crockery, glassware or utensils
  • Wherever possible, signage and displays are reused
  • The venue encourages all suppliers to minimise their packaging and remove it from site
  • The venue operates a water purification system on site to eliminate unnecessary water bottle transportation
  • Biodegradable packaging and take away cups are used in our Café

More generally we

  • The venue aims to achieve a ‘zero to landfill’ for all waste management. Food waste is anaerobically digested to create compost for farms, non-recyclable waste is incinerated to create clean electricity for London
  • Recycle plastics, paper, cardboard, print cartridges, light bulbs, obsolete furniture and IT equipment
  • Provide recycling collection points throughout the building
  • Use low energy light bulbs wherever possible
  • Only use energy rated equipment
  • Print double sided and use recycled paper for photocopying
  • Turn off lighting and air conditioning when rooms are not in use
  • Source furniture and equipment from sustainable sources
  • Source electricity through sustainable, green suppliers
