The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) has been recognised for maintaining EarthCheck Platinum Certification in its 11th year of participation in the program.
Since GCCEC began the EarthCheck benchmarking process in 2009, the Centre has continued to be leaders of sustainable initiatives within the events industry, ensuring continuous commitment and effort to environmental policies and procedures.
In 2013, GCCEC was recognised as the first convention centre in the world to achieve Gold certification. The Centre continued its sustainability leadership, being awarded the first convention centre in Australia to receive Platinum status in 2018, alongside Adelaide Convention Centre.
“This accolade recognises 11 years of GCCEC’s commitment to the environment and sustainable initiatives in the event industry,” said GCCEC general manager Adrienne Readings.
“The GCCEC Green Team will continue to explore and implement ways to further improve responsible operational practices as we pursue EarthCheck Master Certification.”
