The benchmarking and certification will be delivered through EC3 Global, Green Globe International's exclusive provider of the benchmarking and certification program worldwide.
ECC expects to receive the Green Globe benchmarked status by September 2008, thereby becoming among the first Congress Center in Europe to achieve that status in the Green Globe program and the first to achieve it under Green Globe International's comprehensive sustainability services agreement.
