Te Pae Christchurch At Its Greenest

15th February 2023

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has signed an agreement with Toitū Envirocare which strengthens the venue’s position on sustainability.

The Toitū carbon programmes have international recognition and are the only ones in New Zealand certified under the ISO 14064 standard (organisation) and ISO 14067 standard (product) by the JAS-ANZ (Joint Accreditation System for Australia and New Zealand).

Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre General Manager Ross Steele says: “The goal will then be to bring clients and suppliers along on the journey and look at ways to work with them to minimise the impact of the events we host – something we are well supported in with Ōtautahi Christchurch’s own commitment to reaching net zero emissions.”

With ‘Small Footprint – Big Impression’ as its guiding principle, ChristchurchNZ foresees delivering a comprehensive Business Events Sustainability Framework for Christchurch this year, in order to halve the city’s emissions by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2045, according to ChristchurchNZ Head of Business Events, Megan Crum.
