Twickenham, the Home of England Rugby and RFU head office, is developing a three year plan for sustainability - looking at governance; waste management; energy management; transport and procurement.
A number of sustainability targets have already been met in these areas by the stadium, including: increasing recycling to 65% of all waste generated on site, as a result of Twickenham’s ‘Recycle More than the Ball’ campaign
In 2009, the RFU joined the Major of London’s Green 500 scheme and achieved a Gold award for its carbon saving activities.
Simon Mills, head of sales and marketing at Twickenham Experience, said: "The green agenda is still an important aspect of venue selection for meetings planners, in our experience. There is an expectation that certain environmentally responsible practices will be in place, but we aim to go beyond the basics to deliver a comprehensive sustainability policy that we can be proud of."
