In a further pledge to operating in an environmentally conscious way, the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) has launched their 5-year Sustainability Strategy.

The strategy provides a structured and staged approach to GCCEC’s dedication to minimising environmental impact. The organisation is actively contributing to the global effort by aligning to UN Sustainable Development Goals as guiding principles for its initiatives.

The strategy was developed in consultation with industry expert and advisor, Larissa Rose. It outlines what the venue has achieved so far, and the initiatives it intends to implement over the next 5 years.

Terry Murphy, Executive Manager Property Operations GCCEC said that the Sustainability Strategy 2024-2028 reflects the organisation’s dedication to being a leader in driving a more environmentally conscious events industry.

“We have taken our commitment to responsible operations a step further with the development and implementation of a 5-year plan that sees us educate, act and deliver across multiple areas from internal processes to offering support to clients and visitors to GCCEC.”

Since opening in 2004, GCCEC has implemented a raft of initiatives that have resulted in responsible waste management, optimised energy usage, reduced water usage and the achievement of Master certification by EarthCheck.
