COSLA cares about playing its part in a sustainable society and promotes civic engagement.

Here’s just a little of what we’re doing to help:

  • We provide dairy free and vegan alternatives for delegates at no extra cost, and our Chef’s Choice menus for lunchtime catering are 50% vegetarian options by default.
  • In certain areas of the Conference Centre, we use motion sensors for our lighting to save energy.
  • We now offer a built-in hybrid function in four of our conference suites, plus a portable videoconferencing unit.
  • We recycle food waste, glass and plastic to limit as much waste going to landfill as possible.
  • Water we provide for events is served in glass bottles which are sanitised and reused with water from our own water supply.
  • Our COSLA pens are 100% recyclable.
  • We promote the use of excellent public transport connections nearby.
