Manchester Central is committed to minimising its impact on the environment. As a leading venue and a major employer, all our activities reflect this commitment and we take our corporate, social and environmental responsibilities very seriously.

In January 2013, Manchester Central became one of the first major conference and events venues in the UK to achieve ISO 20121 Event Sustainability.

Since then, Manchester Central has become the first major venue in the UK to achieve triple ISO success after it was reaccredited with ISO 20121; was accredited with ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management,  and ISO 9001, the international standard for quality management systems. 

This international standard aims to boost the local economy and reduce our impact on the environment. It also engages with and helps to educate the local, national and international community.

Our Sustainability Policy outlines all our sustainable objectives and is reviewed annually to make sure we are achieving our objectives and meeting our commitments.

We encourage everybody to read the policy and offer their feedback. Our sustainability team aim to respond to each comment so email
