Environmentally responsible venues

CCT Venues is officially one of the most environmentally responsible businesses in London, according to the Clean City Awards organised by the City of London Corporation. One of just 10 top-performing sites in its category, CCT Venues has secured the prestigious Chairman’s Cup Award in 2016, and the Platinum Award every year since 2010, having previously received a Gold Award, showing a consistently improving track record.

Clean City Award

Through the tireless team efforts at CCT Venues-Barbican and CCT Venues-Smithfield, we ensure that we incorporate best practice for environmental issues

Being ‘green’ is something that CCT Venues actively advocate, ensuring that we are optimising recycling, reuse and reducing waste and litter year on year and constantly look for new ways to improve.

Awards are based on site visits by inspectors and documentary evidence submitted by entrants. In addition, the in depth Platinum Award application probes issues such as staff communications and the reduction of smoking-related litter.
