A new global report and online database released by UFI – the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry – reviewing the industry’s contribution to sustainable development, has recognised International Convention Centre Sydney’s (ICC Sydney) for its exemplary practice.
Launched to track progressive initiatives and projects in the exhibitions business in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN), 20 global submissions were accepted including three from ICC Sydney – the most of any venue.
Here, ICC Sydney was mentioned for translating the UN’s goals into actions through its Feeding Your Performance culinary program, which strives to feed the performance of ICC Sydney delegates and visitors, team members, and the local economy, through a unique New South Wales-focused supply chain.
ICC Sydney was equally acknowledged for launching the first Reconciliation Action Plan in an Australian convention centre to celebrate Australia’s First Nations people, alongside the launch of its industry-first Legacy Program, which actively enriches visitor experiences while delivering lasting impacts for Sydney’s vibrant community, long after events conclude.
ICC Sydney CEO, Geoff Donaghy said ICC Sydney welcomes the launch of the new resource as a step in the right direction towards a more sustainable future.
