SCEC Wins National Environmental Award
For the fourth year running, the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre has won the Best Green Initiative category at the national Exhibition and Events Association of Australasia’s Annual Awards.
Announced at a gala dinner in Sydney last night, the award recognises the ongoing emphasis that the venue places on its environmental practices as well as its role as an industry leader on sustainability issues.
Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen commented: “The fact that the Centre has won this award every year since it was first launched in 2008 recognises the commitment of our team.”
“They are focussed on creating a more sustainable events industry and are always looking for new ways to improve our environmental performance.”
The Centre’s submission for the national EEAA awards highlighted its continued improvements in its environmental measures, overseen by its own Ecowise team, as well as work this year to create a long-term strategic plan for the venue which identifies new waste management targets for the period 2011 to 2015.
