“We are extremely proud to have been awarded the internationally recognised Green Key Accreditation. For us, as a conference Centre, we want delegates to know that their activities are having a reduced environmental impact when they choose to come here and that we have committed to continue reducing our impact and Green Key Award will also help promote the Conwy Business Centre internationally to those who want to know that they are making a more sustainable choice.
Although we already felt that we had a responsibility to consider the environmental impact of what we do, we weren’t sure what was involved in being accredited or if we would reach the criteria For the Green Key Award.
However, Pauline, our contact from Keep wales Tidy was excellent; she was so supportive and encouraging and explained all about it, and what was involved. We looked at what activities we already did and Pauline helped us formulate an action plan which will help us continue making low impact and greener choices in the future; and, ultimately, we’ll be saving money too.
I’d encourage any business to find out more about the Green Key Award; we all have a contribution to make ensuring that our business operations are sustainable and a responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and Green Key really does help to integrate practical processes and choices into everyday operations.”
