Quebec Congress Centre
The Québec City Convention Centre has received the BOMA BEST Level 3 certification for its green management.
Level 3 certification attests that the convention centre has, for several years, taken a number of actions to green its management, achieving a score of 80 per cent to 89 per cent on the Go Green Plus assessment.
For example, the centre features energy-efficient lighting; mercury-free lights; computerized management of energy demand; optimized work methods; and a preventative maintenance programme.
The convention centre also maintains an efficient residual waste management system, which yields a diversion rate of up to 80 per cent. That waste management system (paper, cardboard, glass, metal, plastic, food waste) brings selective collection into the daily routines of the facility’s teams.
