As part of our corporate social responsibility we are committed and hold ourselves accountable through strong leadership and fostering a culture of responsibility and personal ownership in all areas of the 2024 Show.  

For us, Corporate Responsibility includes Health, Safety and Environment; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the Acknowledgment of Indigenous Peoples and Heritage.

We aim to:

  • Select a socially and environmentally conscious venue that contributes using a Reconcillitaion Action Plan, is EarthCheck certified and committed to waste reduction.
  • Engage suppliers and contractors who are equally committed to building a sustainable future through a balance of environmental, social, economic and cultural factors. Where possible, priority will be given to organisations who are Supply Nation registered
  • Acknowledge the Brisbane Traditional Owners, elders past and present where appropriate including Welcome to Country and acknowledgements
  • Donate excess catering to Emmanuel City Mission and merchandise to registered charitable organisations, community groups or local schools
  • Source merchandise items that have an extended life (not a one-time use) are recyclable, made from sustainable and/or recycled materials.
  • Collaborate with the Local Brisbane Rotary Club for event tasks and donation opportunities at the Show
  • Minimise Show waste and the use of one-time paper/printing by going digital where ever possible.

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) is committed to environmental and sustainable practices. Check out the BCEC Corporate Social Responsibility policy here.
