Saint Paul RiverCentre is known for sustainable events. It is important to us to be proactive with events to work towards lessening the carbon footprint left behind once the event is over.
To do that, our staff enrolls our Green Team for events with a high volume of leftover food. At the conclusion of the event, our Green Team will work with the event’s exhibitors to separate leftover items with the goal of keeping as much as possible out of the waste stream. Events are encouraged to get connected with a local food shelf to enable eligible food to be donated to the local community, and our Green Team works hand in hand with exhibitors to help ensure that items not suitable for donation get composted or recycled properly. Our Green Team weighs all the items suitable for compost and recycling, and provides the event organizer with a sustainability report to track its efforts.
More information on donation centers can be found here.
To enroll our Green Team in your event, please reach out to your Event Manager.
Interested in learning how well your attendees do at being green? With advance notice, our team can put together a sustainability report that measures recycling and composting efforts, water use, and energy use.
As leaders in sustainability, we continually seek to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and engage both our staff and community in these efforts. Our programs focus on six main topics: waste, energy, water, environmental procurement, air quality, and staff and community engagement.
