Te Pae Christchurch achieves sustainability gold

MEETINGS will held at the new Te Pae Convention Centre in Christchurch.

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has expanded its sustainability credentials, receiving a Gold Sustainable Tourism Business Award from Qualmark.

The award builds on Te Pae Christchurch’s earlier achievement of Toitū enviromark gold certification.

“Very early on in our journey at Te Pae Christchurch we set a standard for how we want to operate and work with clients, suppliers and our industry,” said Te Pae Christchurch general manager Ross Steele.

“Sustainability and strong focus on customer service are key pillars for us and it’s humbling to see our efforts recognised with gold by the Qualmark team.”

Qualmark is judged on sector specific criteria across four areas – economic, environment and culture, social/people and health and safety.

Qualmark praised Te Pae Christchurch‘s commitment to sustainability, stating that its commitment goes right across every aspect of its core operation.
