Discover what sustainability means to the BDC.

Sustainability is vital to all of us at the BDC. It’s about delighting our clients and visitors without negatively affecting the planet. As an events venue, we are in a unique position of being able to reach huge numbers of people in a short space of time. We intend to use this position for good.

We are proud to be recognised for our efforts as we put our values into action. Out of the many awards we have gained at the BDC, winning the Exhibition News Corporate Social Responsibility Award in 2018 and 2019 is one that we are most proud of.

We have taken many steps to boost sustainability at the BDC. For more than ten years, the venue has been carbon neutral. We send zero waste to landfill. We also use 100% renewable energy to power the building, offsetting any carbon generation we cannot avoid.

We also focus on sustainability in our community and the rest of the world. This includes working with the Carbon Neutral Company to invest in developing international communities, which are gauged against the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
