Since our inception in 2011, we’ve partnered with Green Mountain Energy to offset the estimated carbon footprint of attendee travel to and from the conference using carbon offsets—investments in projects that reduce or avoid carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that contribute to climate change.
Here at SXSW, we're in the business of putting on large-scale events. We also both recognize and take accountability for the impact these events have on the environment.
A big thank you to Green Mountain Energy Company, SpinFish Event Solutions, Carbon Trade Exchange and Texas Disposal Systems. Learn more about these exciting sustainable initiatives at SXSW Eco 2014 including carbon offsets, waste diversion efforts and water offsets!
At SXSW Eco we like to practice what we preach. That’s why this year’s attendees may notice something a little different when it comes to Eco signage. We are excited to announce the switch to digital signage for 17 of our programming rooms.
