Greenbuild Sustainability Goals

Greenbuild International Conference + Expo has established seven long-term goals for improving the sustainability performance of the show.

We believe these goals address the most relevant event impacts of both Greenbuild and the meetings and events industry. Our commitment to these goals does not change in the hybrid World. Greenbuild is more committed than ever to producing a sustainable hybrid event, that positively impacts our industry.


For Greenbuild to remain relevant for the next generation of leaders, we must push diversity hard at every turn, changing established thinking. And giving access to opportunities where you can learn more about each other and topics that drive change is our goal. Everything we do goes towards creating the ultimate experience: making a safe, inclusive space for people to gather and celebrate together. Greenbuild is the place to discover, celebrate, and belong.
