The Sandton Convention



The host venue stands proud.

The Sandton Convention Centre has been given a stamp of approval by Greening the WSSD.

With good reason.

The SCC has a range of environmental management and recycling policies in place. It actively pursues a detailed "Green Plan."

Two small examples. All glass used at the SCC is sent for recycling. And each administration office has a recycling bin for paper, cardboard, plastic and cans.

The Centre conserves lighting and air conditioning in many ways:

Lighting in public areas are dimmed or switched off when it is not
needed.
Preference is given to indoor plants that consume small amounts of
water.
Sensors in restrooms save water by switching taps off and by
controlling flushing.
Guards make it their duty to close doors left open -
reducing the load on the air conditioning system.

In conjunction with the Greening the WSSD, the SCC is supplying delegates with the option of free-range and organic foods.
