As a live entertainment and leisure venue, our main areas of focus are:

•    Consumption of electricity, heat, water and other resources
•    Production and disposal of waste & pollution
•    Atmosphere emissions from travel associated with our business

Why is it important for the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham to manage environmental impacts?

•    To assist Nottingham City Council with their Energy Strategy and align ourselves with their Environmental policies and objectives. 
•    To be a leader in the live entertainment, conference and event industry as a responsible venue for artists and audiences to visit.
•    To reduce our emissions and resources through research and investing in, and implementing, efficient and innovative technologies and behavioural changes.
•    To comply with environmental legislation and regulations, and to strive to comply with industry best practice.

How are we effectively managing and reducing our environmental impacts?

•    By using sustainable, renewable, clean energy wherever possible, including from our Waste-to-Energy supplier and solar powered PV cells on the roof of the building. 
•    Measuring electricity, water and heating consumption and comparing and reducing consumption via bespoke metering equipment.
•    Launching a recycling programme to maximise recyclable waste streams by setting and continuously improving recycling targets and performance. 
•    Implementing a ‘zero to landfill’ (non-hazardous) waste management system. Non-recyclable waste is incinerated locally, providing electricity and heating for the venue.
•    An energy reduction plan has been introduced to identify capital investment opportunities and behavioural intervention in order to reduce energy and water consumption.
•    The creation of a company-wide Environmental group which serves to educate staff, identify and prioritise new environmental opportunities and manage, monitor and report on their impact. 
•    Offering support for, and increasing awareness of, environmentally friendly public transport and alternative, greener modes of transport to the facility for staff and customers.
