Our Sustainability Policy:
Creating sustainable venues London
Choose a sustainable venue in London
London is a bustling metropolis with a wide variety of venues and spaces to host events, photoshoots and other gatherings. However, as we become more conscious of the impact that our actions have on the environment, it’s important to consider a sustainable venue in London for these events. This is where Lumiere London comes in.
We are committed to providing sustainable venues in London. This means that we take steps to reduce our environmental impact and to make our space as eco-friendly as possible. Some of the measures we take include:
- Using energy-efficient lighting and equipment
- Implementing recycling and waste reduction programs
- Using sustainable and environmentally friendly materials
- Offering options for reducing transportation emissions
By choosing a sustainable venue from Lumiere London, you can host your event or photoshoot while also reducing your impact on the environment. Additionally, our team is happy to work with you to come up with solutions that align with your sustainability goals. We believe that every small step counts and we’re proud to play our part in preserving the environment in London.
Lumiere continues its aspirations to be sustainable and to support local communities, international and local charities, including UNICEF, as well as offering workshops, apprenticeships and internships to young people and to champion aspiring artists.

Our achievements so far
We are committed to creating sustainable venues in London, and are proud of the steps we have taken to make our venues more environmentally friendly. Our efforts include:
- Monitoring and reducing energy consumption.
- Reducing waste
- And incorporating sustainable practices into all aspects of our operations.
One of the ways we have made our London venues more sustainable is by implementing a three-bin system for different types of waste. FirstMile turns this waste into energy. We also prioritize using locally sourced food and other environmentally-friendly products. Read more about our steps for creating sustainable venues in London below:
Recycling & Reusing
We don’t send anything to landfill, recycling 98% of our waste including all of our tech. Anything that can’t be recycled is turned into energy electricity and biofertilizer by First Mile, our waste disposal people
We have three bins in every room: one for food recycling, mixed recycling, and one for all other waste
We encourage our clients to mark their names on their cups & reuse to reduce water wastage
Energy Saving & Monitoring
We use energy efficient light bulbs throughout our spaces and don’t turn lights on just for the sake of it
Sustainable Food & Food Waste
We use fresh, ethically produced ingredients sourced locally where possible to support our local community, as well as reducing our carbon footprint
We do our best to support British farmers and suppliers by using many seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats and fish with effective menu planning to reduce our carbon footprint
We avoid food waste by using food sharing apps like OLIO, offering excess food to our staff and clients and sharing with our local community
All our venues have excellent public transport links and we provide bike storage facilities for our staff and clients
The simplest way to manage our sustainability, FuturePlus firmly believes that we should measure what we value most, not just value what we can easily measure.
