The PPA is working towards a greener future and our events are part of that. We look to implement a number of action points across 2023 including working with event suppliers that have sustainable and responsible solutions to limit our carbon footprint.

What are we doing:

  • Our caterers 'Create food' design dishes sourcing only the highest quality seasonal and sustainable ingredients, prioritise suppliers who are artisanal small business from within London, introducing a fully electric fleet of vehicles to cut down on their carbon footprint.
