As Belfast in Ireland welcomes back meetings, a green accreditation came at a perfect time for the International Convention Centre (ICC) Belfast. Together with sister entertainment venue, Waterfront Hall, the venue has been awarded the Green Meetings Silver Award.
Being the first events venue on the island of Ireland to receive the accreditation, ICC Belfast portrays its successful efforts in organising sustainable meetings. Supported through a city wide sustainable Green Tourism partnership funded by Belfast City Council and delivered by Visit Belfast, the venue strives for high standards in sustainable energy, water and waste as well as catering, communications and community involvement.
ICC Belfast Chief Executive Julia Corkey, said: “We have implemented greener measures throughout all aspects of the organisation, such as sending zero waste to landfill, adopting a digital-first approach and utilising LED technology and lighting. This award truly embodies our dedication to providing a safe and sustainable environment for our team, clients, customers and community, alongside our commitment to ensuring future generations have the ability to successfully continue the legacy – today, tomorrow and beyond.”
