PUBLIC & VISITORS | Sustainability
The Oregon Convention Center shares its community's concern, respect and responsibility for the natural environment. We are proud to lead our industry in green building and results-driven sustainable practices. This is a commitment upheld by our administration, our partners, and our entire staff – a commitment that has been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program at the Platinum Level.
We offer an extensive waste recycling and recovery program that includes pre- and post-consumer organic waste, complete menus featuring locally-grown and organic food items and a host of facility features including storm water management and the most modern innovations. Our goal is to maintain OCC’s industry leadership as the preferred venue for green meetings.
