The Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls (SCCN) is keeping it 'green' by offering our clients, guests and visitors a healthy, eco-friendly convention and meetings experience.

The SCCN was recently awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification by the Canada Green Building Council*. LEED is a third-party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

The SCCN practices what it preaches and it is committed to its local community and the environment by making it its mandate to minimize its carbon footprint through a number of Green Initiatives and programs, including:

Building Initiative

Building

The Scotiabank Convention Centre was designed-built to embrace green and eco-friendly ideals through the use of: recycled (13%) and locally sourced building materials (25%) during its construction; and extremely efficient mechanical systems, which result in significant energy and water savings.

The SCCN takes an active role in helping the province reduce its overall dependency on coal-fired power plants by partnering with EnerNOC, which works with the Ontario Power Authority through a DemandSMART program that significantly reduces our building’s energy consumption during high energy demands. Learn more about DemandSMART, by visiting: http://www.enernoc.com

Waste Management

The three Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, are effectively put into practice by our enthusiastic SCCN team through a number of building practices, and services such as: water and electricity conservation; waste management; and even, food & beverage services that focus on sourcing ingredients from local suppliers.

Waste Management Initiative
Education Initiative

Education (GREEN TOURS)

We love to brag about our Green Practices! GREEN TOURS are available the first Thursday of every month at 10:00am. Please RSVP at 905-357-6222 or email greentours@fallsconventions.com. (minimum of 5 people per tour necessary.) Group tours available on request at any time.

For more information on our Green Tours, contact: greentours@fallsconventions.com

Food & Beverage

The SCCN Food & Beverage services are committed to green and sustainable practices. Regional and seasonal ingredients for the Centre’s menu offerings are sourced from local farms and growers within a 160km (100 mile) radius; this significantly reduces the unnecessary use of carbon fuels from long-distance shipping.

The Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) is the leading national industry organization advancing green building and sustainable community development practices. We work closely with our member organizations who are involved in the design, construction and operation of buildings and homes in an effort to make every building greener. The CaGBC reduces environmental impacts from the built environment through education/training, building certification, performance benchmarking and reporting, advocacy and information sharing. The CaGBC is the license holder for the LEED green building rating system in Canada. In addition to LEED and the new GREEN UP Building Performance Program, the CaGBC also supports the Living Building Challenge, Passive House Standard and EcoDistricts in Canada.
