Green Meetings

The George R. Brown Convention Center is one of the top convention centers in the United States with an increased commitment to sustainability. Having long recognized the importance of green efforts, the GRB started looking for opportunities to reduce its carbon footprint in 1998 and hasn’t stopped since! The GRB regularly partners with Houston-area groups to recycle, reduce and reuse waste from events, helping ensure that the GRB’s commitment to sustainability benefits the local community. Even the facility itself is green, having first earned LEED Silver certification status in 2011 and renewed in 2017 through 2021. The GRB is able to divert more than 42% of its waste from facility and convention events away from landfills.

The George R. Brown Convention Center remains committed to high sustainability standards and is proud to raise the bar for green meetings throughout the United States.
