Hosting a sustainable conference is important to us. Here is what RMSANZ, DC Conferences and the Adelaide Convention Centre are doing to try and achieve this:
The lanyards and satchels used at RMSANZ 2019 are made from bamboo. They are ecologically friendly and biodegradable.
The company RMSANZ have chosen to work with to produce these offset 100% of their carbon emissions through the purchase of carbon offsets used for Energy projects in Wind farms in China.
There will be no conference handbook available at RMSANZ 2019. All information normally found in the handbook is now available through the conference app.
The conference app provides delegates with more information than a handbook ever could; delegates can read through a number of abstracts and information that previously could not fit into a conference handbook, browse digital copies of submitted posters, connect with exhibitors and other delegates, plus so much more.
Consistently performing at ‘above best practice’ in several key areas of natural resource preservation, the Adelaide Convention Centre has actively participated in the EarthCheck program since 2007, and is proud to be one of the first convention centres in the world to be awarded the coveted EarthCheck Platinum certification.
ACC purchase 97% of their produce from local suppliers, enjoy long-standing partnerships with OzHarvest, Foodbank and Variety SA, and offer employment opportunities and apprenticeships through various organisations.
ACC aims, through the implementation and application of the ACC’s Environment and Social Sustainability Policy, to commit to Fair Trade Principles where feasible.
