Congratulations to the NEC, the events and exhibition centre and part of NEC Group, on winning this year's Impact on Sustainability award at the BIFM Awards 2015.

Focussing on zero waste to landfill, the organisation managed to save 1,303 tonnes of carbon in 2014 alone, as well as saving more than £700,000 in landfill tax. The NEC manages to meet its targets by closely monitoring activity on site with KPI audits and regular compliance checks.

Led by the facilities team, the whole organisation, including suppliers, event organisers, staff and local communities are part of what is calls a 'culture of change.'

The NEC use CAFM Explorer's facilities management software to manage assets, PPM, helpdesk requests, contractor management and multi-level reporting at the Exhibitions Centre, Genting Arena, ICC and Barclaycard Arena.
