Proudly net carbon zero: Ross Steele Te Pae General Manager

In the regeneration of Ōtautahi Christchurch over the last 13 years, our city has undergone a remarkable transformation guided by purpose, sustainability, resilience, and innovation.

With our accessible contemporary design and eco-friendly buildings, it’s great to see Christchurch is now a leading example of a sustainable urban city which stands out as an ideal destination for business events.

It was encouraging to hear this message reinforced by clients and industry peers at a recent Tradeshow (AIME) held in Melbourne. We should all be proud of what our city has achieved.
Sustainability has always been a high priority for us, so I’m excited to share Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has been certified as Toitū net carbonzero. This means that our venue has met Toitū Envirocare’s internationally recognised standards of measuring, managing, and reducing lifecycle emissions from our operation, which is great news for Christchurch.

Te Pae leads the industry in world-class sustainable operations, and is the first convention centre in Australasia to achieve this significant milestone. Since the early planning stages of Te Pae, we have been passionate about achieving environmental excellence, and our team have worked hard to reach our net carbon zero goal after just 20 months of operations.

The next steps are continual small improvements to further reduce emissions, and bring clients and suppliers with us on the journey, to minimise the environmental impact of the events we host, something supported by Christchurch’s own commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2045, ensuring future generations can enjoy our beautiful city for many years to come.
