Melbourne is committed to becoming one of the world's most sustainable cities for business events with the goal to be carbon neutral by 2020.
Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB) recognises the value of sustainable practices for meeting organisers and delegates and is continuously developing Melbourne’s capacity for delivering sustainable events.
We actively grow and promote the city's sustainability credentials to the business events industry in Australia and abroad whilst also contributing to the broader sustainability agenda by actively sharing learnings from such events with the tourism sector and wider community.
The Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS Index) is an initiative that drives the adoption and recognition of sustainable practices in the business tourism and events industry.
Melbourne continues to delivers sustainable programs across transport, urban city spaces, design and infrastructure to develop an eco-friendly future for the city.
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is the first convention centre in the world to be awarded the 6-Star Green Star environmental rating by Green Building Council of Australia.
