UN Conference at The Adelaide Convention Centre - Case Study (2016)

The forum comes together every year to share best practices, experience and knowledge with developing countries and to discuss waste management and related issues. Green Industries SA – the state’s key agency for driving resource efficiency improvements to increase productivity and profitability – worked closely with the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD) and ACC to deliver the four-day forum which focused on the challenges of urbanisation and sustainable development. Other forum partners included the Australian Government, CSIRO and the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. “In recent years we’ve been helping ACC achieve its sustainability targets, so it was a privilege working with them on such a prestigious event,” said Vaughan Levitzke, Chief Executive of Green Industries SA. “Traditionally the 3R forum is held in the host nation’s capital city but the United Nation’s organising body recognised South Australia’s strong track record in environmental leadership and nominated Adelaide. “This was a significant coup for South Australia and allowed us to strengthen existing relationships in the region and develop new connections with high-level government representatives from Asia-Pacific countries, City Mayor and international experts. It also delivered the Adelaide Declaration - towards the Promotion of Circular Economy under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”
