Sustainability Initiatives & Practices

In 2018, GCCEC achieved EarthCheck Platinum status in recognition of our commitment to operating at the world’s highest environmental standard. GCCEC was also the first convention centre in the world to attain EarthCheck Gold status.

As sustainability gathers momentum in the events community, and clients become more aware of environmental impacts created by their events, the GCCEC team is committed to leading the events industry towards a more sustainable future.

Sometimes, the most simple and inexpensive initiatives not only reduce the environmental impact of an event, but boost the morale of the client and enhance their company’s reputation.

GCCEC's Environmental and Social Sustainability Policy is driven by a volunteer committee of dedicated employees, who maintain the Centre’s Environmental Management Plan that tracks and controls key areas of energy and water consumption and waste management.

The Centre offers event organisers a free Green Event Guide that outlines comprehensive steps to help clients reduce the carbon footprint of their event or simply become more aware of sustainable industry practices.
