We're making changes to the way the ASC runs

Events generate a large amount of waste and often leave a large carbon footprint. With this in mind, the RACS ASC Conference and Events Team is making changes to the way the ASC runs in order to avoid the depletion of natural resources. Our goal is to help maintain the environment or at minimum ecological balance.

We want to work with our delegates to ensure that we reduce our environmental footprint and subsequently reduce the amount of damage we do to our environment.

Help us achieve our goals and familiarise yourself with changes you can make not only onsite but pre and post congress as well to reduce your environmental footprint.

We’ve outlined some important things to help us meet our goals, click on the links below to find out more.

A growing population puts increasing pressure on the earth’s finite resources. Sustainability is about finding ways of providing food that will last for future generations and have less of an impact on the environment.
