Beyond Zero Carbon
Pines Calyx eco conference & events centre becomes a ‘carbon negative’ and ‘energy positive’ building. Environmentalist Sir Crispin Tickell joins celebrations as centre becomes the first conference venue in Europe to achieve this standard. Read the press release.
The pioneering environmental building has installed cutting edge technology to generate its own power and heat with the capacity to produce more than it consumes – making it the first conference building in Europe to reach beyond ‘zero carbon’ and become carbon negative in energy use.
