Pennsylvania Convention Center 2023 Sustainability Report

Philadelphia, PA – In commemoration of Earth Week, the Pennsylvania
Convention Center released its 2023 Sustainability Report [2]. The
report provides a summary of the Center’s environmental sustainability
and social responsibility initiatives for the past year, as well as its
accomplishments over the past 10 years since the Pennsylvania Convention
Center Authority (PCCA) selected ASM Global as the Center’s venue
management partner.

Some of the Center’s sustainability accomplishments over the past
decade include a 55% increase in single-stream recycling tonnage, a 54%
increase in the waste diversion rate, a 13% decrease in electricity
usage, a 30% decrease in natural gas usage, and the award of the Events
Industry Council (EIC) Sustainable Event Standards gold certification
for venues in 2023.

“The Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority’s successful 10-year
partnership with ASM Global has resulted in the implementation of
several innovative and industry-leading programs and initiatives,”
said David A. Nasatir, Esq., Chair of the Board, Pennsylvania Convention
Center Authority. “The Authority is unwavering in our commitment to
sustainability and social responsibility, and we are grateful for the
opportunity to partner with organizations such as ASM Global that share
this commitment.”

As highlighted in the report, the PCCA/ASM Global partnership started in
2013 and the first annual Sustainability Report was issued for 2015,
highlighting the Center’s waste diversion and energy conservation
efforts. Since then, the facility’s sustainability and social
responsibility programs have expanded and include the launch of the
Center’s “Green Team” and the purchase of renewable energy
certificates (REC) in 2016, the launch of its construction and
demolition (C&D) recycling program in 2017, and the launch of the ASM
Global Acts [3] program in 2021.

“The Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority has made and continues
to make significant investments in sustainability and social
responsibility, with priority being placed on ensuring that our
operations are efficient; providing a safe, healthy, and welcoming
environment for all who enter the Center; and giving back to the
community in which we serve,” said John J. McNichol, President and
CEO, Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority. “Our partnership with
ASM Global has brought these goals to life and we will continue to work
together to further expand our initiatives and our positive impact in
the community.”

In the report, the Center also identifies its goals for the upcoming
year, emphasizing its ongoing commitment to maintaining sustainability
and social responsibility as a core part of its operations.

“ASM Global’s innovative and dynamic approach to sustainability and
social responsibility is unmatched in the industry,” said Tony
Hodgins, General Manager, ASM Global. “The Pennsylvania Convention
Center Authority has always shared our vision of what a meaningful
sustainability and social responsibility program should look like, and
because of their support, our team at the Pennsylvania Convention Center
has implemented initiatives that have moved the needle and raised the
