When it comes to caring for the environment, there is more awareness and caution amongst the world’s population now than ever before. You’d struggle to find a company that isn’t striving to be green nowadays – not only for show, but to save costs and due to genuine personal conce. There are companies, of course, who specialize in environmental research, protection and the raising of awareness about these important issues.
If you work for a company that promotes sustainability and environmental protection, you could consider having your next event at The Crystal. This venue is owned by Siemens, and is the most eco-friendly building of it’s kind. The building uses no fossil fuels whatsoever, and is powered by electricity and solar power, while the heating is sourced from the ground below and rainwater is harvested for various purposes. Even though the technologies are relatively new, this venue still runs as reliably as clockwork, and everything functions to a very high standard. The purpose-built auditorium can hold up to 270 people, and is comfortable and practical with state of the art AV and sound equipment – all eco-friendly, of course! Breakout areas include a decked terrace overlooking Victoria Docks, and the on site restaurant serves locally sourced fresh food all year round.
