The TCF Center Green Committee is back in business after the crushing blow to the events industry from the COVID-19 pandemic. As the venue rebuilds staff, members of the Green Committee are sourced from every department and vendor company working in the centre.
"This will be a pivotal year for our sustainability programme", said Karen Totaro, general manager TCF Center/ASM Global. "Our work in the centre to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and recertify as the largest LEED venue in Michigan will be front and centre for our efforts in 2022."
„This will be a pivotal year for our sustainability programme. “
Several initiatives are planned for 2022, including a redesigned sustainability marketing programme, green event guidelines that shift focus from waste diversion to material life cycles, banning the use of foam core materials in the venue, re-energising the focus on food redistribution, sustainable meal options, composing and zero waste events, and a human trafficking policy that trains all stakeholders and outlines reporting procedures.
