Situated between two World Heritage listed areas, the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest it is important the Cairns Convention Centre maintains stringent environmental controls.
Twenty years after winning the EIBTM “Most Environmentally Conscious Congress Centre Award” the Centre continues its industry leadership in the area of sustainable operation.
The Cairns Convention Centre holds Earth Check Green Globe benchmark status based on practices commenced in 1996 when the building opened.
Whilst the environment is an important part of the Centre’s CSR policy, one of our most heart warming projects is the supply of excess delegate satchels for use as school bags in the “child soldier” rehab centres in Ghana and the MAF Kids Programme in Paua New Guinea and Arnhem Land.
If you are holding an event at the Cairns Convention Centre and would like to participate in the “Satchels for School Project” your Event Coordinator will be happy to assist.
