Amsterdam RAI has become the first exhibition and congress centre in Europe to achieve the esteemed Gold status from EarthCheck, the sustainable benchmark in the business tourism sector. Amsterdam RAI has demonstrated an exemplary performance and a continuous improvement in sustainability.
CEO of EC3 Global and EarthCheck Stewart Moore said, “Attaining EarthCheck Gold certification is not an easy task, it requires commitment from the entire personnel to achieve better results in terms of sustainability each year. The challenge is to continually prove the integrity of an organisation’s operational practices and then be willing to have everything checked and measured by an independent third party.”
Amsterdam RAI scored above ‘Best Practice’ level on waste separation and waste recycling. This makes the RAI the second exhibition and congress centre in the world of sustainable business tourism operators to have been certified Gold by EarthCheck. The Gold Coast Convention Centre in Queensland, Australia, was the first to achieve Gold status earlier in 2013.
