Friends House celebrates earth day with sustainable initiatives

Earth Day isn’t just a date on the calendar – it’s a reminder of our ongoing commitment to protecting and preserving our planet. As a leading eco-friendly event venue, we’re always trying to raise the standards of sustainability in our industry. So, find out what makes us stand out and how we can create the best green meetings experience for you: 


Embracing ethical principles for sustainable events

We firmly believe in the power of ethical practices to create a positive impact on both people and the planet. Guided by the principles of the 3Ps – people, planet, profit – we strive to ensure that every decision we make reflects our commitment to sustainability. From minimising our carbon footprint to supporting local communities, every aspect of our operations is designed to make a meaningful difference. At Friends House we ensure all our deliveries are carried out via electric vehicles with our partners and suppliers. 


Powered by clean energy for a greener tomorrow 

Our journey towards sustainability begins with our choice of energy. We make the conscious effort to partner with clean, renewable energy suppliers. By opting for energy free from fossil fuels and nuclear power, we’re taking a significant step towards combating climate change and preserving resources for future generations. This Earth Day, we celebrate our commitment to clean energy and renew our dedication to building a greener, more sustainable future. We are always looking at new ways to improve our energy efficiency. 


Zero waste, zero landfill: making every resource count 

Waste is not just something to be disposed of – it’s an opportunity to make a positive impact. We have implemented rigorous waste management practices to ensure that nothing from our venue ends up in landfill. By working closely with our waste disposal suppliers and encouraging responsible consumption among our customers and staff, we’ve significantly reduced waste and maximised sustainability. From providing food to go bags to minimise food waste to recycling every scrap, we’re committed to making every resource count. 


Leading the way in ethical hospitality 

Our dedication to sustainability has earned us recognition as an ECOsmart Platinum venue and Green Meetings Gold accredited facility. These achievements affirm our commitment to eco-friendly practices and set the standard for environmentally responsible meeting and event hosting in London, an essential criterion for many event bookers. We are committed to leading the way in ethical hospitality, proving that it’s possible to host unforgettable events while still protecting the planet. 


Looking ahead: our vision for a greener future 

As we look to the future, our vision for Friends House is one of continued innovation and sustainability. We’re committed to exploring new technologies, embracing alternative energy sources, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in sustainable events and hospitality. From implementing cutting-edge waste reduction strategies to exploring carbon-neutral practices, we’re constantly seeking new ways to minimise our environmental impact and maximise our positive contribution to the planet. At Friends House, we are working towards being net zero by 2029 in our efforts towards building a greener future for all. 


This Earth Day, we invite you to join us in celebrating the beauty and wonder of our planet – and committing to protecting it for future generations. Whether you’re planning an event, attending a meeting, or simply stopping by for a coffee, every choice you make can have an impact. With us, events don’t cost the earth. Contact us to organise your green meetings with us today.
