Convention Centre Acknowledged as an Environmental Leader

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has been acknowledged as an environmental leader in the new ‘AEG 1EARTH Sustainability Report’ for its commitment to energy conservation, waste reduction efforts and specifically, its energy-efficient lighting project.

This is the second sustainability report by AEG, owner of AEG Ogden Pty Ltd, Australia (AEG Ogden); the report details the progress of the AEG1EARTH environmental programme which incorporates a framework for reducing environmental impacts with metrics collected from 58 venues from the AEG global network including the Centre’s, detailing the group’s progress towards its 2020 Environmental Vision Goals.

AEG Ogden is KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd’s joint venture partner in Convex Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the manager and operator of the Centre.

“Taking our cue from AEG Ogden we will continue to explore all avenues and opportunities to enhance our sustainability efforts and in doing so, play our part in reducing environmental impacts within the context of our business,” said Datuk Peter Brokenshire, General Manager, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

The Centre’s sustainability initiatives can be viewed in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2010 here.
