The CSIR International Convention Centre (CSIR ICC) won the National Tourism Lilizela Award for best single resource – waste management.

The Lilizela Awards are aimed at recognising establishments in the tourism industry with best social, economic and environmental practices.

“We constantly look out for innovative ways to curb any negative environmental footprint brought about by our business operations. Such recognition of our efforts by the Minister and his team is the affirmation we need to continue making a difference in our communities,” said Snedz Sidzatane, CSIR ICC facilities manager.

Having recently included a local Tshwane school in its community outreach project by providing them with waste management training, the CSIR ICC is clearly making huge sustainability strides in its industry and imparting its knowledge with communities in which it operates.

“What a great achievement for the CSIR ICC. First time entry, first time finalist and first time winner!  I’m proud of our team who have worked, and still continuing to work tirelessly to ensure we make a difference when it comes to taking care of our environment,” said Glenn Harding, CSIR ICC general manager.
