London venue wins recycling awards

A top sustainability award for medium-sized businesses has been given to The Barbican thanks to its recycling efforts.

The London venue has netted the Chairman's Cup for outstanding practices in waste management and recycling.

Anthony Hyde, head of corporate sales, said the venue was thrilled to receive the award.

"We continually focus on the implementation and improvement of our sustainability projects, something that is only possible due to the dedicated efforts of our sustainability management team," he added.

The judges praised the venue for its commitment to improving waste management through direct investment in recycling facilities for the public.

Mr Hyde added that the venue will continue to work on "the most up-to-date vision of energy and resource use" so as to further minimise The Barbican's environmental impact.

Opened in 1982, the London venue features the 1,949-seat Barbican Hall, as well as the 1,166-seat Barbican Theatre, the 200-seat Pit theatre and a number of other spaces, including two trade exhibition halls.
