AECOM’s Annual Dinner featured a menu of sustainable seafood
During the popular season of corporate banquets and spring gatherings in the first quarter of the year, AWE hosts many large-scale banquets attended by thousands of guests, resulting in a significant consumption of seafood. To support the "Sustainable Seafood Week", AWE is proudly promoting environmentally-friendly dining choices by proactively advocating for sustainable seafood menus in collaboration with event organisers.
One example of this is AECOM, a multi-disciplinary infrastructure and consulting firm that is trusted globally. AECOM held its Annual Dinner on 26 January at AWE with over 300 tables for nearly 4,000 employees. In line with its sustainable legacies strategy in leading the change towards a more sustainable and equitable future, the feast featured a menu of sustainable seafood. Delectable dishes such as "Braised Abalone and Black Mushroom with Vegetable", "Steamed Whole Sustainable Giant Grouper", "Wok-fried Prawns with Vegetables and Supreme Broth" and "Tossed Jelly Fish" were all prepared using sustainable seafood to minimise the event’s impact on the environment.
