CCT Venues, three times winner of prestigious Platinum Award at the Clean City Awards

on Thursday, 14 February 2013. Posted in News Archive, 2013

We are pleased to announce that CCT Venues has won the Clean City Awards 2013 for the third year running

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

Being green is something that we are actively advocate, ensuring that we are optimising recycling, reuse and reducing waste and litter year on year.

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.

We have an active recycling scheme, going that extra mile, not only recycling the usual toners and cartridges, but we also glass, paper and plastics, with a policy which encourages a company wide attitude constantly looking for opportunities to waste less. In addition we ensure that we reuse containers from food produce and make use of unwanted printed literature, converting them to notepads.

Managing Director Caroline Bull commented:

We are delighted to have once again been awarded the Clean City Platinum Award. There is a lot of talk about the importance of Green issues but in reality this area is rarely a high priority for service businesses. These awards are testament to CCT Venues' on going commitment and passion. Once again this Award reflects our desire to make a positive difference, not just to our customers and staff but also to the wider environment.

Further success for CCT Venues is reflected in excellent growth throughout 2012. Despite business levels continuing to challenge most venue operators, CCT Venues-Barbican has seen occupancy increase by 15% and superb service has definitely been key to this growth.

In response to this surging demand, CCT Venues-Barbican opened a new training Suite in the autumn.

The new Suite is a new floor of premium space transformed into eight bright, airy rooms, complemented with a relaxing, spacious refreshment area. The space has been designed specifically for training, with floor to ceiling windows and modern furniture and AV equipment. The space has already proved to be a very popular for training programmes and other events.
