Each year, we work hard to reduce our environmental impact, a goal we could not achieve without our amazing Sustainability Partners!
Around the Austin Convention Center and all SXSW Eco satellite events, Sustainable America will work with our contracted venues to provide compost and recycling throughout the conference with the help of Texas Disposal Systems. To reduce wasted materials during our exhibition, SpinFish Event Solutions will work with our exhibitors in advance to keep exhibiting materials out of the trash and to repurpose them for new life.
We have also partnered with Green Mountain Energy to provide carbon offsets which will balance out the carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions created by registrant’s estimated travel to and from the conference.
In addition to SXcycles, we have partnered up with RideScout to give registrants many options to choose from when catching a ride to the next Eco event! RideScout is a free mobile app that provides users with real-time information on available ride options. Be it by bus, rail, taxi, Car2Go, SideCar, pedicab or Electric Cab RideScout will help you get there. Learn more about RideScout and your transportation options onsite at the Transportation Help Desk.
Be sure to stop by the booths of Sustainable America, Texas Disposal Systems, and SpinFish Event Solutions at the Eco Exhibition on Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8 and give them a hearty thanks for making our event exceptional!
