Two smart reverse vending machines are designed to improve the CCV’s sustainability record. Delegates and visitors are entitled to redemption points when they deposit their empty plastic bottles and aluminium cans in the RVM. The points can be exchanged for retail promotions and discounted lifestyle experiences from prominent brands and establishments. International meetings and events attendees can enjoy local experiences of their own choosing by redeeming their recycling points.

“Sustainability is a very important aspect of our business and we will continue to invest and innovate in this direction. Placement of the RVMs has been in our pipeline for very long and we are delighted to have realised this. Growth needs to be inclusive of all people and this is just a small step by the venue to promote responsible living and healthy lifestyles that will cultivate a better future society”, sais General Manager Alan Pryor.

“Points can be redeemed for rides at Resort World Genting, discounts on GRAB (e-hailing and food delivery application), VIP access code for iQIYI (Asian content streaming platform) and many more exciting experiences,” shared Yugatheeswaran Arjunan, Director of Facilities of the Centre.
