Te Pae Sustainability

Te Pae works on the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle. The venue collaborates with their suppliers to ensure the use of scarce resources and emissions are kept to the lowest possible levels.

Key sustainable features include:

  • LED lighting throughout
  • Smart projectors
  • Food dehydrator system
  • Digital signage across the entire centre
  • eWater system
  • Occupancy sensors to manage power usage

The centre also has waste and recycling bins placed across all areas in the effort to maximise recycling and correct rubbish disposal.

To reduce our waste, we will provide delegates with Keep Cups to use at the Coffee Cart - these are sponsored by Citycare Property.

We also no longer provide printed signage or materials for delegates (i.e. the agenda), instead we encourage you to find all useful information via this website/app. You may also notice we have stopped using plastic sleeves for the lanyards.
