At the end of 2010, Toronto’s Exhibition Place reported a waste-diversion rate of 85 per cent, surpassing the original goal of 80 per cent set in 2004.

In addition, as of Dec. 31, 2010, Exhibition Place has reduced its use of grid electricity by over 65 per cent.

These rates represent the diversion of 4.68-million kg of waste from the waste stream and from landfills and the reduction of 15.4-million kWh from the electrical grid.

Exhibition Place’s waste-diversion programme separates 32 products during exhibitions, conventions, meetings and events.

All food containers used in the exhibition and convention-centre facilities are compostable; all waste food products are collected and diverted using the four-stream waste containers in all facilities.

Exhibition Place accomplished energy reduction through the use of leading green technologies.
