Wind power comprises 99% of Texan “Green Energy” and, amazingly, the George R. Brown Convention Center is powered from 100% green energy. For more information, we encourage you to view the center’s Green and Brown Facts worksheet.
At The Event in particular, we are working to “grow up and green up” our training labs to eliminate unnecessary waste and create greater efficiencies during your classes at the expo. For instance, all spent coffee grounds will be collected for composting. Additionally, we are starting to transition to 100% recycled AND 100% recyclable conference signage.
The impact that we, as conference attendees, have on the environment is partially offset by international carbon sequestration projects in partnership with Trees for the Future. This year, carbon offsets (in the form of trees) go directly towards the portrait country, Brazil, and we encourage you to continue supporting the program by offsetting your travel, and even shipping, when registering for The Event online.
