Denver is a "natural" fit for green meetings and events.

The city of Denver is dedicated to sustainable development and ecologically friendly practices that will help us develop a green Denver as well as green meetings. Denver's Office of Sustainability provides leadership and solutions to ensure a prosperous community where people and nature thrive. Natural beauty surrounds us daily and we care about the environment.

Green is here to stay. VISIT DENVER has all of the tools, a sustainable convention center, eco-friendly transportation and other resources to assist planners in implementing green practices, reducing, reusing, recycling and giving back.

GREEN COLORADO CONVENTION CENTER

In May 2014, the center has improved its LEED status to LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council through the recertification process required every five years. With a dedicated Sustainable Programs Manager, a robust green program and a 300,000 kilowatt solar array, the LEED Certified Existing Building is the premier sustainable conference center and ideal location for a green meeting or convention.
