Your go-to venue for sustainable events in London

As a Green Meetings Gold and ECOsmart Platinum accredited venue, sustainability is part and parcel of our operations. We take action to reduce our carbon emissions, cut our waste, choose local sourcing, and preserve our ecosystem. Here are a few of the initiatives we’re taking:

  • We source 100% green energy,
  • We capture our carbon footprint and report on it,
  • We have a zero waste to landfill objective,
  • We don’t use single-use plastic in the venue,
  • We use locally sourced ingredients where possible.

Recently, we launched our ‘Plant The Difference Menu’, a 100% plant-based menu. For every 40 delegates this menu is ordered for, we plant a tree. So, far we have planted 800 trees in cooperation with the Future Forest Company.

We are committed to the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit. We firmly believe in fostering sustainable practices and ensuring that all our staff are remunerated fairly, well above the real Living Wage. Your bookings make a positive impact. All profits generated by Friends House are gift-aided to the charity of Quakers in Britain, supporting initiatives that champion peace, justice, equality, and sustainability—both locally and globally.
