Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility

York Conferences is a subsidiary company of the University of York. All our profits go back into the University, funding developments in facilities, research and education.

Sustainable principles underpin the University of York’s £500 million campus expansion. It is a visionary development with a target to achieve an “excellent” BREEAM rating, with a minimum of “very good” for all buildings.

The 117-hectare expansion includes measures to ensure more efficient use of energy and water, and the further reduction, reuse and recycling of waste. The University is also developing a combined heat and power plant, as well as investigating the feasibility of using wind power, to meet the energy needs of the entire campus.
