Cairns Convention Centre continues to meet EarthCheck certification standards

Cairns Convention Centre continues to meet EarthCheck certification standards
February 24, 2013

The Cairns Convention Centre has again been accredited with EarthCheck certification, the international benchmarking process recognising standards that meet the compliance needs of the new carbon economy.

In receiving its latest EarthCheck certification, benchmarking data provided in seven indicators noted Cairns Convention Centre is at or above best practice level, an achievement which was very highly commended.

The seven indicators are: Energy Consumption Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Potable Water Consumption, Waste Sent to Landfill, Waste Recycling Rating, Community Contributions Rating and Cleaning Products Ratings.
Cairns Convention Centre General Manager Ross Steele explained "it is heartening to receive our EarthCheck recertification. This recognises the commitment of the Centre's entire team to maintaining the highest environmental credentials and is in line with AEG Ogden's worldwide environmental program AEG 1Earth.

"Situated between two World Heritage listed areas, it is only natural that environmental responsibility is a priority of the Cairns Convention Centre."

The Cairns Convention Centre is a Queensland Government initiative operated by AEG Ogden.
