ICC Sydney pioneers plastic bottle waste reduction

International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has saved more than a million plastic water bottles through its partnership with Sydney Water.

By promoting the use of Sydney's tap water at events and using co-branded, reusable glass bottles in all meeting rooms, the initiative has significantly decreased bottled water consumption onsite, saving the equivalent of 12,900 kilograms of plastic being produced.

CEO of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy, says the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnership between ICC Sydney and Sydney Water is delivering results for clients, the community and the environment.

'It's imperative for large scale venues to operate in a sustainable manner for the sake of the environment and we are exceptionally pleased that we have already produced such positive results.'
