Environmental Policy

The Hub, trading as The Edinburgh Festival Centre Limited, takes its responsibilities to our environment seriously. You can be sure, when you work with us, that you are engaging with a business that takes its green credentials seriously. 

We believe in a commitment to “reduce, reuse, recycle” and aim to minimise our environmental impact with regard to events and operations.

Staff at the Hub are committed to our recycling policy, which includes recycling of paper, aluminium, plastic, cardboard, glass, print cartridges, batteries, oil and food waste. This policy covers our Cafe Hub & Hub Events operations, as well as our offices, which include our parent organisation: Edinburgh International Festival Society.

We encourage staff to use environmentally friendly modes of transport, when possible, and also encourage energy efficiency throughout the organisation through a staff awareness programme which involves taking individual responsibility for switching off lights and equipment when not in use.

We also welcome our clients to our building and policy and we hope you will respect and engage with our aims when you are guests in our building.
