Scottish Event Campus plants trees for the future
The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) has pledged to plant a tree for every appointment with SEC at IMEX. The venue, which recently announced its ambition to achieve net zero by 2030, will also be sharing other sustainable initiatives taking place at the SEC since it hosted the globally recognised COP26 conference last year.
“We’ve set our ambition for net zero by 2030, and it is something both ourselves and our clients want to talk about,” said Kathleen Warden, director of conference sales. “The Trees for Life initiative at IMEX underlines that we’re threading sustainability into everything we do, from our operations to our sales and marketing. It’s also a way to do something positive for the people we meet at the event.”
The SEC will plant a tree in the Caledonian Forest on behalf of every person that the team meets at IMEX. The business has an existing relationship with Trees for Life, which it has worked with for the last 15 years.
Another sustainable initiative is the OVO Hydro, one of the three main venues on the SEC campus, which has become the world’s first arena to achieve the A Greener Arena Certification. Additionally, the company has also introduced sustainable stack cups for live events, which will reduce the venue’s carbon emissions by 1,500 tons over 10 years.
