Washington, D.C. is a very walkable city and all the hotels in the room block are within walking distance the convention center. If walking or biking to your destination isn’t an option, check out the Washington, D.C. public transportation system to get around the city.

Think Before You Throw
Waste to landfill results in a significant carbon impact. While we do our very best to reduce the amount of single use disposable items at the event, some are just unavoidable. Do your part by really checking out the waste bins onsite.
There will be a three bin waste system throughout the Walter E. Washington Convention Center where you can easily throw recyclable materials and compostable materials into clearly marked bins.
We know climate change is having serious effects on communities across the world. For the last 10 years, Greenbuild has offset all scope 1, scope 2 and a portion of scope 3 carbon emissions related to the production of the event. How you can participate:
- Make sure to purchase your offset when you register (it’s $25 towards fixing our planet!)
- This year we are asking you, the Greenbuild community, to help us choose the final project that will offset the event’s footprint and positively impact a community in need.
