THE In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Syd­ney (ICC Syd­ney), has been awarded LEED Gold for its ef­forts in sus­tain­abil­ity.

LEED (Lead­er­ship in En­ergy and En­vi­ron­men­tal De­sign) is a rat­ings sys­tem de­vel­oped by the US Green Build­ing Coun­cil (USGBC).

The cer­ti­fi­ca­tion recog­nises ICC Syd­ney for reusing 100,000m³ of con­crete from the orig­i­nal brown­field site, us­ing 96% re­cy­cled steel in the Ex­hi­bi­tion Hall, Aus­tralia’s largest elec­tric car charg­ing sta­tion, so­lar pan­els and more.

The so­lar pan­els pro­duce 5% of the venue’s en­ergy.
