MTC Events division awarded sustainability accolade

The Manufacturing Technology Centre's events and conferencing division - MTC Events - has received a top award for its green credentials and approach to sustainability.

MTC Events, a standalone business within the MTC, based on Ansty Park near Coventry, has received an EcoSmart Gold Award following a searching assessment.

The award is made by Greengage Solutions, specialists in environmental sustainability in the events and travel sector. Assessors looked at a wide range of measures including energy and water conservation, waste management and recycling, eco-friendly rooms and facilities, sustainable food and drink offerings, and corporate and social responsibility.

MTC Events, based in the MTC's Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, hosts events for major manufacturers and business organisations.

MTC group marketing director Richard Watkins said: "We are delighted to have been awarded Gold accreditation for our approach to the environment at MTC Events. The events industry can create waste and have a negative impact on the environment so it’s vital that we address our responsibilities. We have gone to great lengths to minimise our environmental impact and we actively support event organisers with green practices."

Part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, the MTC was founded by the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and TWI Ltd. Its industrial members include some of the UK’s major global manufacturers.

The MTC aims to provide a competitive environment to bridge the gap between university-based research and the development of innovative manufacturing solutions, in line with the Government’s manufacturing strategy.
