Corporate Social Responsibility


At ICC Sydney, we're committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations, working with our partners and clients to facilitate sustainable events.

As part of a recognised Green Precinct, awarded 6 stars under the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star Communities certification, and with a Gold LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, ICC Sydney hosts a raft of key sustainability features. In 2020 ICC Sydney received the Silver EarthCheck certification and was winner of the international UFI Sustainable Development Award for our outstanding initiatives. 

Through an industry leading partnership with Sydney Water to decrease bottled water consumption and a partnership with OzHarvest to donate unused food ICC Sydney is also demonstrating its commitment to reducing waste and supporting communities in need.

Make your visit more environmentally friendly

  • Help us increase our recycling rate by placing all waste and recyclables into the appropriate waste recycling stream bin  – you'll find these colourful bins throughout our venue.
  • Consider taking public transport, or carpooling to avoid traffic, save on petrol and parking, and reduce your carbon footprint. 
  • Turn off taps when you’re finished – let us know if you spot any leaks.
  • Use only as many disposable items (e.g., paper towels, napkins, utensils) as you need.
  • Consider walking or cycling via one of the many inner city routes. More information is available at: and
