Our green initiatives

The Centre’s escalators are sensor driven resulting in a 30% reduction in escalator energy usage

Our organic food waste dehydrator  turns 100kg of organic waste generated by the Centre  into 10kg of nutrient rich biomass, a sterile and safe to handle soil enhancer. This is donated to the City Parklands Services and used in the South Bank and Roma Street Parklands.

The Centre is an official QLD FluoroCycle Signatory. FluoroCycle is part of the National Waste Policy which seeks to increase the national recycling rate of waste mercury-containing lamps.

Recycled water is used to clean the facility’s roof, approx. 37,500m2.  The process of blocking storm water drains and redirecting water to collection containers recycles 170,000L for reuse and preventing pollution from entering the storm water system
