The CCIB, International Convention Centre of Barcelona, a pioneer in environmental stew- ardship (the first ISO 14001 certified venue

of the GL events network in addition to being European EMAS (Eco Management and Audit Scheme) certified, adopted an approach to identify the electrical power base- load or the minimum amount of electrical consumption in the absence of activity, i.e. without events. The first step is to characterise the equipment generating the baseload (computer or telecommunications equipment, fire protec- tion, equipment cold rooms, etc.). Energy consumption was then quantified for each item of equipment concerned in order to define measures to optimise this baseload. Measures identified should reduce baseload consumption by 4,722 kWh per day.

INFLUENCING BEHAVIOUR Strict operating instructions are applied at Group sites to prevent all energy waste. Awareness-raising efforts targeting staff are carried out on a daily basis with the sup- port of environment coordinators.

In connection with ISO 14001 certification of the sites of GL events Venues France, achieving energy consumption efficiencies is a key objective. Procedures, instructions and tracking indicators promote improvements in practices with the involvement of all staff whose activity impacts energy consumption.
