UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has announced that ICC Sydney is the winner of the UFI Sustainable Development Award 2020.

The UFI Sustainable Development Award 2020 was designed to recognise companies that have implemented a successful Waste Management approach for exhibitions. The jury selected the “Waste Reduction Program” conducted by ICC Sydney as the winning entry because of their comprehensive approach to the topic, the clarity of their road map, and their strong results.

“Waste Management is one, if not the most important environmental issue of exhibitions and the extremely high level of the selected entries demonstrates that the industry can develop strong programs in that area, as part of their overall sustainability strategy. Overall, the jury selected sixteen best practices, from thirteen different countries. ICC Sydney stands out for their full scope practical and successful approach”, comments Philippe Echivard, Director of Environment and Security at Palexpo (Switzerland) and Chair of the UFI Sustainable Development Working Group.

Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, says: “We are honoured to receive the UFI Sustainable Development Award for ICC Sydney’s waste reduction program. As a venue we are committed to sustainability and fostering positive event legacies for our clients. We also recognise our responsibility to demonstrate leadership and make a positive contribution towards the waste crisis in Australia and the global exhibitions industry. Delivered via multiple initiatives, our program targets key waste management issues which has been critical to its success. We look forward to expanding the program, guided by lessons learnt, to continue to create ongoing positive waste management outcomes.”

 

ICC Sydney will be invited to present their entry during the 87th UFI Global Congress.
