Québec City Convention Centre


We save 35,500 cubic meters of water every year, more than our largest room, thanks to our environmental practices.

Leader in sustainable development

As a leader in sustainable development, we hold ourselves to high environmental management standards every day to make the Centre a place where visitors can meet comfortably today, without worrying about the impact tomorrow.

Event and meeting planners can count on our skilled staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and a proven waste collection and management system, all included in the base price. We aim to recycle at least 80% of all the waste and biodegradable materials produced by our activities.

Our employees are vigilant in following the efficient building management procedures we’ve developed over the years to support our sustainable development action plan and our environmental policy. This is one of our many strengths, and we’re proud of it. Every day the Québec City Convention Centre team gets to work on a wide range of sustainable operations so event participants, occupants, and visitors can enjoy their event in a comfortable setting and with a low environmental impact.

Air quality is a health issue
Did you know that we conduct between 10 and 12 air changes in the rooms per hour, and that we use high-efficiency air filters?

Energy, water, and air management at a glance:

  • Honeywell EBI management and operations monitoring system
  • 8,339 kW heating unit
  • 1,500-ton cooling unit
  • 342,844 L/s intake of outside air
  • 120 ventilation units
  • 9,992 monitoring points
  • Energy-efficient lighting and mercury-free lights (LEDs that consume 75% less energy)
“It is important for us to choose event partners who have the same vision as us. Our collaboration with the Québec City Convention Centre is an example. They are proud to put everything in place to protect the environment and offer a green building.”

Lucie Champagne, president of Champagne Événements
