Plan-it green™ - the Edinburgh International Conference Centre Sustainable Events Programme
Plan-it green™ engages Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) stakeholders in a collaborative approach to delivering sustainable events. It targets reduced emissions, reduced cost and it offers a unique carbon sequestration option for the local environment. Fundamentally, it is a roadmap to help the business, its supply chain and its clients achieve their sustainability goals through planned interaction with the cross functional EICC ‘green team’. Branded to enhance communication effectiveness, Plan-it green™ conforms to the strategic direction in place from opening in 1995: Maintain the principles of the Business Excellence framework (EFQM) through aligning with existing standards, build on the reputation as a ‘green business’ and develop the company’s reputation for best practice in sustainability. Sustainability is embedded at EICC and in 2003 the City of Edinburgh Council owned company was an EFQM award and prize-winner.
