Exhibition Place
Princes' Gate, an entryway to Exhibition Place  

Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2020):

Here are some of the reasons why Exhibition Place was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2020):

  • Exhibition Place was first certified by the Recycling Council of Ontario back in 2015, collecting 29 different waste streams across its many properties and events -- and all facility coordinators take the Recycling Council of Ontario's waste auditor course to ensure proper ongoing waste diversion
  • Exhibition Place operates four separate rooftop solar arrays that produce over 730,000 kWh of electricity annually, which is enough energy to power 68 households for over one year -- it also encourages all of its clients (show managers who rent space) to offset their events' carbon emissions, and for those hosting events in the Beanfield Centre building, green power is supplied as part of their rent
