LEISURE operator Sheffield International Venues has been recognised for its energy saving efforts with a top award.
SIV, which operates facilities throughout the city including Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, has achieved the Carbon Trust Standard after reducing its carbon emissions by 4.8 per cent.
SIV’s energy and environmental manager Sean Midgley said: “It is great recognition for our achievements in carbon reduction and demonstrates our commitment to reducing carbon emissions year on year.
“It shows that we are taking action as a company by reducing the carbon emissions that we are directly responsible for across our portfolio of 17 venues.
“The Carbon Trust Standard requires us to keep reducing our carbon emissions and to recertify every two years, which means we have to continue working hard to reduce our impact on the environment.”
