Sustainability is at the core of ICC Sydney’s business practices. In alignment with the ASM Global Acts worldwide sustainability and equity program, ICC Sydney’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program is committed to best practice environmental sustainability and creating a meaningful and lasting legacy for our clients, team and community. Adopting the three key CSR pillars of: Protect the Environment, Invest in People and Strengthen our Community, we have identified several initiatives to support our clients in reducing their environmental footprint while maximising positive social contributions through the world class events we deliver every day.
As the venue’s new Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, I am excited to share my environmental science knowledge, passion and expertise to achieve best practice environmental and social outcomes for each event we host.
With over 11 years of experience in leading project teams to deliver environmental impact assessments and environment and sustainability reporting across an array of industry sectors, geographies and clients including water resources, renewable energy, transportation and major infrastructure, I am excited to be part of the extraordinary ICC Sydney team as we work to support our clients, delegates, stakeholders and community partners to achieve their CSR goals.
Our pledge towards a sustainable future
ICC Sydney, proudly managed by ASM Global, is proud to be one of the first signatories of the EEAA Sustainable Events 2030 Pledge to achieve environmentally sustainable events by 2030. Focusing on seven key impact areas: exhibitor waste, attendee waste, food and beverage (suppliers, carbon footprint, food waste and packaging waste), staging signage and promotions, stand design, logistics and electronic equipment, the pledge demonstrates our accountability and commitment in working towards a more sustainable future.
ICC Sydney is also a proud signatory of the Joint Meetings Industry Council’s Net Zero Carbon Events initiative. Launched back in November 2021, this initiative steers the global events industry towards the common goal of achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2050. Following the best available science on the impacts of climate change, the pledge acknowledges the urgent need to accelerate towards global net-zero emissions and in particular, the role of the entire events industry; which includes organisers, venues, accommodation and travel to mitigate their impact and champion this much needed change together.
