February 28, 2019
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) continues to build on its sustainability credentials with a range of initiatives delivering great outcomes for the venue.
MCEC’s Chief Operating Officer, Leighton Wood said the venue strives to be leaders in sustainable business practice.
“At MCEC we are always working to find innovative ideas that provide better outcomes for our community, our customers and our environmental footprint.
“Over the years we have led the way with many sustainable initiatives.
“Take Melbourne Renewable Energy Project (MREP) for example. In 2018 we joined 13 other reputable Melbourne organisations to support the development of a wind farm in regional Victoria. This initiative enables us to offset the projected electricity use of our 20,000 square metre expansion space with renewable energy,” Mr Wood said.
