As one of only a handful of U.S. LEED-EB and ISO 14001 certified convention centers in the nation, our dedication to resource conservation, sustainability, source reduction, and waste diversion is standard operating procedure.

After their event, planners may also consider donating unconsumed food and other consumer goods to our KBHCCD Good Neighbor Program, which diverts left over items from landfills to local non-profits.
