Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Leave a legacy behind

ICC Sydney is committed to providing clients with the most enriching experiences, on every level. An Australian first, our client Legacy Program was designed to help you deliver an impact, and contribute to the intellectual and cultural capital of Sydney, long after the conclusion of your event. Our legacy team works with clients to identify how they might advance the social or sustainability goals of their event, forge a new partnership with a local organisation, or simply give back to the community. As an ICC Sydney client, you have access to our five legacy streams. What kind of legacy will you leave behind in Sydney?
 

Australia is a land with a proud indigenous heritage. In the spirit of reconciliation, paying our respects to Elders past and present, and acknowledging the original custodians of this fine country—specifically the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation on whose land ICC Sydney stands—we developed the First Australians stream. We firmly believe that we have an obligation to celebrate and showcase the cultures of Australia’s First Nations. Through our partnerships with the NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council, the KARI Foundation and Supply Nation, ICC Sydney offers connections to local First Nations businesses which clients can engage in their conference programs.
 

Sustainability is key at ICC Sydney. We have set KPIs around energy, water and waste and regularly report on our successes in this area. In line with our commitment to sustainability, we work closely with clients to ensure their events are as sustainable as possible during the event planning process. For those clients wishing to track their event impact, the venue can provide data on event energy, water usage and waste to assist in post-event reporting.
 

Connect with talent from across the local community. Sydney is home to an abundance of talented performers, artists and designers, and offers an array of world-renowned galleries and museums. Through our network, ICC Sydney is able to provide a creative connection for clients, from featuring emerging or established artists and performers at an event to facilitating bespoke artwork tours and assisting in organising gifts for delegates from authentic Australian artists.
 

Who will you pass the torch to? To help engage, foster and support the next generation of leaders, ICC Sydney developed the Generation Next stream. We work with clients, as well as our partners in academia and industry, to provide the leaders of tomorrow with access to the important events of today. We can provide students with access to your event, facilitate connections with them and even track their engagement.
 

Sydney is not short on ideas. Home to a vibrant startup community, Sydney boasts world class innovators and entrepreneurs. And ICC Sydney can connect you with the best of them. Working in partnership with local startup hubs and their members, government, academia and industry, ICC Sydney has developed a program where industryspecific startups are invited to pitch, present and showcase their ideas at relevant events.

Hosted by ICC Sydney, the startup spaces are a venue inclusion, and participants in the program are selected by a Steering Committee made up of well-connected startup business and incubator CEOs. By helping connect the ideas of the city’s emerging innovators with visiting business leaders, delegates and potentially investors, the Innovators & Entrepreneurs stream can support the commercialisation of local incubating businesses and introduce the next generation of members to your association or business.
