Currumbin RSL receives EarthCheck accreditation

Currumbin RSL is proud to announce that it has recently completed the EarthCheck Evaluate Plus program. The accreditation solidifies Currumbin RSL’s place as a valued member of a global group of operators who are continually improving their environmental and sustainable practices.

EarthCheck is the world’s leading scientific benchmarking certification and advisory group for travel and tourism. The company places emphasis on assisting organisations to develop their sustainability practices.

The EarthCheck accreditation is an enormous achievement for the Currumbin RSL as the club prides itself on immersing itself in sustainable practices and making a difference to the community as well as the environment.

The club’s Chief Executive Officer Anne Stovin is extremely proud of the new EarthCheck accreditation. “We have been part of the community for 70 years and we take our role as a champion of sustainability very seriously. The achievement requires a whole of business approach and a real team effort, which includes feedback from our members and guests. We are committed to operating sustainably and environmentally and we hope we can influence others in our industry to do the same,” said Ms Stovin.

The newly appointed accreditation will not only aid Currumbin RSL in enhancing its sustainability practices and giving back to the community, but will also provide significant benefits for the club and its members.

“Currumbin RSL realises the link between sustainability and business performance and is continually reaping the rewards from its investment in sustainable practices. “Adds Ms Stovin.

The EarthCheck accreditation is an extremely useful asset to the club and will perfectly complement its current practices and equipment such as its three, 30 000 litre water tanks and its bottle crusher which crushes an average of 3500 bottles a week. Initiatives such as these are a major driving force for Currumbin RSL as they not only save the environment from harmful waste and overuse of resources, but they have a significant impact on financial efficiency as well.

By working with EarthCheck, Currumbin RSL has joined other global industry leaders who are taking meaningful steps towards resolving some of the very real issues that face many of our communities and our planet.
