Sustainability

{10-11} Carlton House Terrace are fully committed to reducing their impact on the environment and being more sustainable.

Sustainability

{10-11} Carlton House Terrace takes the environment very seriously. Therefore, the venue strictly monitors its use of unnecessary energy, regulating air-conditioning in public spaces and ensuring lights are kept switched off when not needed. From low energy bulbs, e-brochures, recycled products, using green energy providers and a water management system; the list goes on. We also encourage our clients to think about the environmental impact of their events. 

Food & Beverage 

 Our catering partners Searcy’s have always been focused on providing a fresh, seasonal Best of British menu. By using the freshest, best-quality ingredients sourced responsibly from local suppliers, they are creating a better experience for our customers, the community, and the environment. They ensure sustainability is at the heart of our business, with a series of sustainability pledges across their iconic and exclusive restaurants, bars and events venues. 

Their sustainable practices pledges include an assurance to reduce the use of plastic, switching to metal cutlery, china crockery and glassware for food consumed in our cafes. Where disposable packaging is unavoidable, it is minimised and aligned with the company’s strict waste management protocols. Furthermore, they have also eliminated the use of plastic straws across all our venues and events. For full information on all their pledges please click here

Paper 

Since last year, following new measures to save paper, the venue has reduced their printed papers by over 20%, saving trees and reducing CO2 emissions. There is ongoing work to look for ways for individual departments and client events to move further online, cutting paper use.  

Waste 

{10-11} Carlton House Terrace work with Pulse Environmental who deal with building waste in an environmental responsible way. General waste (non-recyclable) is either Incinerated or used for Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), from which energy is recovered from both processes. Mixed papers are recycled and made into recycled office paper or other items including newspapers. Cardboard is recycled into packaging materials and fresh cardboard for boxes. Glass is made into either road aggregate or further glass products. Cans are made into new drinks cans or further steel products, such as parts for cars, use in construction or bicycles. Plastics are sorted and sent for reprocessing. They are recycled into a large variety of different end products like drinks bottles, sleeping bags and anoraks, signposts, drainage pipes, garden furniture and yoghurt pots. Food waste is composted and the methane gas, a by-product of the composting process, is extracted and used to power the composting facility.
