The Centre Awarded Earthcheck Certification for the Tenth Consecutive Year

Following the Centre’s recent completion of its annual EarthCheck benchmarking assessment, the venue achieved its tenth EarthCheck certificate, which it has retained each year from 2007 to 2016. 
 
The EarthCheck certification encompasses 8 areas of assessment, Policy, Energy, Water, Waste Sent to Landfill, Community Commitment, Paper Products, Cleaning Products and Pesticide Product. 
 
Three of the Centre’s areas of assessment including, waste sent to landfill, paper products and cleaning products were above the best practice level and received a star rating. Over the next 12 months, the Centre aims to achieve better than best practice level in the remaining assessment areas.
 
The Centre was the first convention centre in Asia and one of two convention centres worldwide to achieve the prestigious Green Globe Benchmarked (Bronze) status in 2007. In 2010, Green Globe was replaced by the EarthCheck programme and the Centre’s Green Globe status was transferred to the EarthCheck Bronze Benchmarked Convention Centre Certification.
