MCG and the Environment

MCC Environment Policy

The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is a private club, incorporated under the Melbourne Cricket Club Act 1974. It has public responsibility of managing one of the largest and most successful stadiums in Australia and the world – the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) – as well as the National Sports Museum and the parkland in Yarra Park, adjacent to the MCG. The MCC Charter outlines our commitment to providing the best services and facilities to our members whilst ensuring our unique sporting culture and heritage are enhanced and appreciated.

The MCC recognises that the MCG, its associated events and operations and other MCC managed venues, have the potential to impact the environment. Accordingly, the club is committed to identifying and minimising these impacts through our Environmental Management System (EMS), prepared in accordance with the Australian/International Standard AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004.

In line with this, MCC is committed to:

  • Compliance with relevant regulatory and legislative requirements, standards and codes of practice and regularly evaluating compliance with such requirements.
  • Continual improvement of environmental performance and best practice in environmental management through the implementation of our EMS.
  • The prevention of pollution by managing stadium events and activities in an environmentally responsible manner.
  • Measurement and minimising of resource consumption; specifically water and energy use associated with stadium processes and operations.
  • Waste management practices that identify opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle.
  • Minimising emissions of greenhouse gases and use of ozone depleting substances in developments, activities and events at our venues.
  • Communicating this policy and the procedures in our EMS to staff, contractors, suppliers and stakeholders, as well as promoting the adoption of environmentally sound practices.
  • Regular evaluation of the success of this policy and our EMS and reporting to MCC Committee and senior management.

These commitments provide a framework to set environmental objectives and targets that form the basis for our EMS. We encourage our staff, contractors suppliers and stakeholders to similarly adopt these good business practices and make the success of this policy part of their goals. The President and senior management fully endorse this policy and the formal EMS that has been implemented.
