Sustainability

In a changing world where CSR and Environmental issues become ever increasingly prominent, we are delighted that a key objective of Aberdeen City Council when delivering the new P&J Live facility was to specify that it was built to the highest environmental standards.

P&J Live is proud to be the most sustainable venue of its type in the UK.

Energy Centre

As part of the design we have our own innovative energy centre which uses food and garden waste from around Aberdeen, its then digested in a Anaerobic plant and the resulting hydrogen gas is harvested and used to power the energy centre which supplies Heating, Cooling and Power not only to P&J Live but also the onsite hotels.

Positive Planet

P&J Live has appointed sustainability specialists, Positive Planet, as its Net Zero advisors to help enhance and accelerate the venue’s climate and sustainability journey.

Positive Planet will initially be calculating the venue’s carbon footprint across Scope 1 (direct emissions from owned sources), Scope 2 (indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy) and Scope 3 carbon emissions (all indirect emissions) using the Government approved Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Carbon hotspots within the business will be pinpointed, allowing for the development of a carbon reduction plan. Positive Planet will also engage with all P&J Live staff to conduct carbon literacy training, teaching the basics of climate change science and to develop a better understanding of what changes individuals can make to help impact climate change.
