Exhibition Place has been awarded 3RCertified Platinum Level Status by the Recycling Council
of Ontario (RCO). It is the only organization in all of Ontario at Platinum Level status and is the
first recipient of the program.
RCO recognized nearly 60 organizations from across private and public sectors for innovation
and achievement in waste reduction and recycling at a ceremony on October 23, 2014. The
certification recognizes organizations taking a leadership position in waste reduction and
diversion. It is awarded on the basis of an onsite evaluation and is valid for three years with
successful annual assessments.
“I would like to thank our Chief Executive Officer, Dianne Young and the entire staff at Exhibition
Place for continuously maintaining a level of outstanding achievement through the
GREENSmart program,” says Councillor Mark Grimes, Chair of the Board of Governors of
Exhibition Place. “Obtaining the highest standard for waste diversion in the Province was
recognized both by RCO and Paul Evans, Deputy Minister, Ontario Ministry of the Environment

and Climate Change at the award ceremony and the Board is very thankful and proud of that
Exhibition Place’s GREENSmart Program was established in 2004, and incorporates a number
of environmental initiatives which reflect our goal of environmental responsibility and leadership
with respect to sustainability, energy production and waste reduction.
