Scottish Exhibition and Conferences Centre The Scottish Exhibition and Conferences Centre (SECC) has won a Gold Star for Greenest Conference Venue at the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS).

The award comes after the SECC recently launched its Better Business Campaign, which looks at how the venue can increase its positive contributions to staff, customers, and its local, regional and national communities.

"This is a hugely competitive environment and great steps have been taken to advance corporate social responsibility in our industry so we’re delighted to have picked up the award," says Sales Director at the SECC, Ben Goedegebuure. "The judges commended our venue for demonstrating high levels of green ambassadorship, innovation and cost savings over the last year."

The GTBS recognised its highest achievers of the last 12 months with eight new categories of Gold Star Awards as part of its Green Tourism Week awareness campaign (21 - 27 May).

"We wanted an opportunity to reward our best businesses and provide an opportunity for others to aspire to achieve the highest standards at the Gold level of the GTBS," says Manager of GBTS, Andrea Nicholas. "It is a testament to the commitment of the shortlisted businesses and the success of the advice and support provided by the programme that over 50 per cent of them have been a Gold member for more than five years," Nicholas adds.
