Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre maintains gold standard in sustainability

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has maintained its EarthCheck gold status for a sixth consecutive year.

MCEC sustainability manger Samantha Ferrier said the achievement is an important milestone in their broader commitment to sustainability, including MCEC’s new five-year sustainability strategy.

“As an industry, we need to be accountable for the impact we have on the world around us. This means, to make a meaningful shift across the sector, we must all commit to a shared vision of change,” she said.

“To be recognised as a leader in the sustainability space is a wonderful step towards our vision, to take tangible steps towards a positive impact on the environment.”

MCEC has been EarthCheck certified since 2009 and has achieved gold status since 2016.

Stewart Moore, CEO and Founder of EarthCheck, said that MCEC has taken a significant leadership position in sustainability.

“I would like to congratulate whole team at MCEC on their achievement,” Moore said.

“MCEC is a valued member of a global group of tourism operators who dare to make a difference.”
