 AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE, “GREEN” CONVENTION CENTRE

Long recognized as an outstanding example of a “green” facility, our goal is to serve as a global leader within our industry in this area and to provide opportunities for our clients and their events to aspire to do the same. It’s all part of being a good corporate citizen.
Our Top Green Initiatives

Recycling:

Currently we recycle 77% of all waste we generate, which represents a 26% waste reduction over the past 5 years.

Green Electricity:

Clients and event planners can opt for green power to reduce the environmental impact of their events, while the MTCC also uses it to power all of its administrative offices and electronic signage.

Energy Conservation:

We reduced the total energy consumed by our building by 20% over the past 8 years through measures such as increasing efficiency.

Green Roof:

The South Building is home to an enormous, 300,000-sq.-ft. green roof. This 7-acre green space comes complete with a park and benches for the public to enjoy.

Food Bank Donations:

We recycle more than 2,000 lbs of food annually by donating leftovers to Second Harvest, a major local food bank and long-time partner of the MTCC.

Deep Water Cooling:

We were the first facility in Toronto to be on Enwave Energy’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system.

Pioneers of the Zero Waste Event Concept

The MTCC pioneered the concept of holding large-scale Zero Waste Events and has won numerous awards for this unique approach to recycling.
