The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) has announced its ambition to achieve net zero by 2030. The news follows the venue’s hosting of COP26 last year and its involvement as a founding partner of the NetZeroCarbon Events pledge which launched during the globally recognised conference.
The announcement also underlines the SEC’s support for its home city of Glasgow, which has already committed to being net zero by 2030.
In recent years, the SEC has made significant moves to reduce its carbon footprint. Already 100% of the venue’s electricity comes from renewable sources. In the run-up to COP26 the organisation launched a sustainable food strategy in partnership with Levy UK with a minimum of 80% of all ingredients sourced in Scotland and a commitment that all packaging used will be reusable or recyclable by 2023.
