Green Business

Green Business at RAI, Leeds

What has come to stay is the fact that the environment needs to be taken care of and no more so than in the business tourism industry where venues like ours draw on thousands of people making their way to events such as conferences, exhibitions and banquets.

Our Green business policies have taken into account all aspects of the business from the sourcing of food to the way we travel to events.

We have advice on “Making your event Greener” – tips and tricks to make your event superior standard but with reducing the impact on the environment in mind.

Please see the links to documents below to help you understand our commitment to making our events GO GREEN

“Explore our local natural environment”

RAI’s venues at the Royal Armouries Museum and NEW DOCK are situated within easy reach of local natural attractions. Did you know that at New Dock we are situated on the Transpennine Trail? The Trans Pennine Trail is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders linking the North and Irish seas, passing through the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals and through some of the most historic towns and cities in the North of England. Visit www.transpenninetrail.org.uk for more information, downloads and maps. Visit the Bird Garden and watch for Lake Wildlife at Harewood House and grounds just north of Leeds at the village of Harewood - www.harewood.org Lotherton Hall is just 13 miles from Leeds and has a bird garden with over 200 species – visit www.leeds.gov.uk/lothertonhall.
