As one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in the nation, we are overjoyed to be making a positive impact on the environment. Here at the Santa Clara Convention Center we pride ourselves on being a positive force in the community and environment. We received the Green Power Champion Certificate for purchasing 100% renewable wind and solar energy. We were honored to be acknowledged for the Green Power Champion Corporate half-Turbine Level award.
How the Santa Clara Convention Center is making a Difference
Electronic Charging Stations located in the parking garage incentivize our visitors to consider the environment when they travel to the center.
We are a part of the Green Power Partnership with the Environment Protection Agency (EPA)
We purchase Green Power “clean energy”, this helps the environment by avoiding the release of 933 tons of carbon dioxide. This is the equivalent to taking 171 cars off the road for one year or even planting 777 acres of forest!
The Santa Clara Green Power program is ranked in the top 10 utility green power programs in the US. To learn more click here http://www.siliconvalleypower.com/Home/Components/News/News/34740/2065?platform=hootsuite
We are the proud winner of the WRAP award (Waste Reduction Awards Program) for 8 years in a row; we have been able to reduce waste by 100 tons annually.
We recycle wherever we can at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Since 2002 any paper, glass, cardboard, aluminum, and leftover food have been recycled.
Our in House caterer makes a positive impact by offering green options and donating to the Second Harvest Food bank.
