Sustainability is very important to us at wallacespace. That’s why we’re delighted to feature as one of Hire Space’s Top 5 Sustainable Venues. We believe that a clear conscience is important for clear thinking, so we have made improvements by looking closely at all corners of our business.
We can’t control what happens outside our venue but we encourage sustainable commutes by providing bike storage and showers for both clients and employees.
We try to recycle as much as possible, even our tech, so have general and food recycling bins in every room. These are sorted before being recycled, repurposed or turned into green energy by First Mile.
All food served in our kitchen is fresh, seasonal and sourced locally where possible. We always have a veggie and vegan option available and our meat and fish is certified and traceable. We try to not over cater but any leftover food is distributed among our employees and any kitchen waste is recycled or converted to green energy.
Our rooms are individually temperature and light controlled. We encourage opening windows rather than turning on the A/C and we never leave our energy efficient lights on just for ‘show’.
Our spaces are thriving with plants of all shapes and sizes but these aren’t our only leafy contribution to the planet. In 2019 we planted the first of the trees that would become our ‘wallywood’. We now have around 1,420 trees across the English countryside. Every year our wallywood grows a little larger and hopefully one day we’ll be able to call her a ‘wallyforest’.
We know there is always more we can be doing, so if you have any suggestions we’d love to hear from you. In the meantime check out Hire Space’s other sustainable venues here.
