Green Meetings

At the George R. Brown Convention Center, we are committed to being green, and have long recognized the importance of sustainability efforts. We began seeking opportunities to reduce our carbon footprint in 1998 and haven’t stopped since! 

We first earned LEED Silver certification status in 2011, and have since renewed through 2021. We divert more than 42% of our waste from landfills, and are dedicated to high sustainability standards.

From food banks to local schools, we regularly partner with local organizations to recycle, reduce and reuse waste from events, ensuring that our commitment to sustainability benefits not only our environment, but also our community. 

We would like to connect you to local charity organizations in an effort to support you in achieving your sustainability goals!
