Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) has joined forces with Carbon Positive Australia (CPA) to drive a commitment to environmental restoration, carbon offsetting and community well-being.
CPA is dedicated to raising funds for tree planting initiatives and aims to empower clients to approach events with a carbon-positive mindset.
PCEC GM, Kendra Naidoo, said the partnership will allow events to reduce their environmental impact.
“[CPA’s] work aligns seamlessly with our sustainability goals, reinforcing our commitment to eco-conscious practices into every facet of our operations,” Ms Naidoo said.
“Together, we’re not just reducing our footprint but enhancing our commitment to sustainability, delivering on a promise of environmental responsibility that echoes the values important to our clients.”
The funds raised will contribute to large-scale tree planting projects, fostering environmental restoration and biodiversity.
Since 2001, CPA has planted almost 7.5 million trees, restored 5400 hectares and captured 675,000 tonnes of carbon.
