Venue Cymru achieves ‘Green Dragon’ cut in gas use

23 June 2011

Venue Cymru has announced that, in just two years, gas consumption at the theatre and conference centre has been reduced by over 50%. “This is fantastic news for the theatre. A real achievement, as we are always striving to lower our carbon footprint, and this is a major step in the right direction,” said Marketing Manager, Richard Jones, a member of the UK Venue Managers Association.

Venue Cymru in Llandudno - gas consumption cut by over 50% as part of the Green Dragon environmental initiative.

As part of the Green Dragon initiative Venue Cymru have been striving to cut down on energy and fuel consumption. Green Dragon is a standard with 5 levels, which recognises effective environmental management. It looks at how the work of services and businesses affect the environment, from the waste created in offices, to ways of dealing with the waste collected. John Owen, the Technical and Health & Safety Manager, who is leading the initiative said: “I am incredibly pleased with this result and it is a reflection of the hard work and effort put in by all staff members.”

 

One key factor in the large saving of energy is the recent refurbishment of the Theatre Control System which provides greater control over the boiler and heating structure of the building. As well as this staff members have been enrolled on environmental awareness courses to provide information on how they can further reduce carbon emissions in the workplace.

Venue Cymru in Llandudno, Conwy, is North Wales’ leading 1,500-seat theatre, restaurant, conference centre and arena complex. The venue was previously known as the North Wales Theatre and the North Wales Conference Centre. A £10.7 million project to enhance and re-develop the facilities at then derelict site involved a new conference atrium and suite of meeting and conference rooms, plus a new 1,550 square metre Arena providing a total capacity of more than 5,000 for the conference centre.
