Sustainability Hub

Greenbuild creates carbon neutral, inclusive events that leave a positive impact on communities.

As the largest green building event worldwide, Greenbuild is where inspiration ignites and relationships cultivate to develop the next generation of standards, policies, and partnerships to create a higher living standard for our buildings, communities, and infrastructure.

Sustainability Report

Here's a look at what we’ve achieved as a community at Greenbuild 2021 in partnership with Greenbuild's Carbon Offset Sponsor, Carbon Solutions Group.

  • Average waste diversion rate for Greenbuild - 80%
  • Percentage of carbon emissions offset (scope 1 and scope 2) - 100%
  • Greenbuild uses ONLY reusable or compostable disposables throughout the event.
  • Greenbuild completely eliminated single use plastics from show concessions since 2017.


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.

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.
