Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre’s new carbon positive partnership


Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre has partnered with Carbon Positive Australia (CPA) to offer clients a carbon-positive approach to their events.

Clients will have the opportunity to Donate a Tree or contribute funds towards tree planting through CPA’s tree planting initiatives.

Since 2001 Carbon Positive Australia has planted over 7.4 million trees, restored 5,400 hectares and captured 675,000 tonnes of carbon.

“We are proud to partner with Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, who recognise the importance of environmental responsibility through the sustainable practices they have put in place,” said Lauren Purcell, CPA’s communications & partnerships coordinator.

“This provides an opportunity for Carbon Positive Australia to connect with event organisers and individuals alike to bring awareness to our cause. As a nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping restore the Australian environment through native tree planting and ecosystem restoration, partnerships like these help us achieve our mission, and we can only do this when we come together.”

The funds raised will contribute to large-scale tree planting projects, fostering environmental restoration and biodiversity and support PCEC’s effort to reduce its environmental impact.

“Their work aligns seamlessly with our sustainability goals, reinforcing our commitment to eco-conscious practices into every facet of our operations,” said Kendra Naidoo, general manager venue operations at PCEC.

“Together, we’re not just reducing our footprint but enhancing our commitment to sustainability, delivering on a promise of environmental responsibility that echoes the values important to our clients.”
