VISIT DENVER is dedicated to sustainability, both as a resource for planners and in our own offices. To demonstrate our commitment to sustainable practices, VISIT DENVER has achieved the following certifications and awards:

  • In 2020, NatGeo UK recognized Denver as 4th most sustainable destination in the world. We are proud of the city of Denver leadership and focus on sustainable development and infrastructure. These programs and practices help us support sustainable meetings by building a community of resources and innovation. Lead by the City and County of Denver’s Office of Climate Action, Sustainability & Resiliency, these efforts strengthen our economy and enhance our quality of life and your experience in Denver.
  • The first convention and visitor’s bureau to achieve the ASTM/APEX Level Two certification for a sustainable meeting destination. The criteria within the certification includes a prioritization to sustainable procurement, assisting planners with options for donations and volunteer opportunities, and working with our members to assist in their sustainability journey. 
  • In 2019, VISIT DENVER was proud to have been certified to the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program at the Gold Level. This program focuses on the tracking of our metrics and implementing a sustainability plan for our organization.
