Sustainability at University of London Venues

Sustainability is the cornerstone of what we do. The event industry has a significant role to play in fighting climate change, and we’re doing all we can to help. 

Bethany Willian, our Sustainability Officer says:

As more events are being planned, it’s so important that we continue to ensure our offering is sustainable, both environmentally and socially. Throughout the pandemic, the sustainability team have continued our work to ensure the institution is as sustainable as possible. We work closely with our catering partner Aramark to increase our offering of seasonal vegan and vegetarian food, and eliminate plastic from our operations.

Event Catering at University of London Venues

In collaboration with our talented executive chef, we’ve created fantastic new menus that showcase the finest organic ingredients. Our catering team can provide bespoke menus that are suited to your event, while making the most of locally-sourced produce. 
Executive Chef, Daniel Trace, says:

Here in the Senate House kitchens, we are passionate about sustainability: from the ingredients we use to the method it is delivered, and indeed, how it is served.

Innovation is key to our motivation, either by bringing something new to the marketplace or by taking a classic, pulling it apart and making it the best it can be. All of this is based on the simple ethos of enhancing the natural characteristics and beauty of each ingredient. Food is the most intimate of connections we have as a species. Whether cooking for one person or 1000, the experience should be just as intimate.

As the world changes, we have a responsibility to introduce more plant-based ingredients into our menus. Even the slightest of changes can have a huge positive environmental effect, but also, we can lead the way and inspire others to do the same, and in doing that, together, we can feed the future.
