Today, CompuCycle attended the HGAC - Regional Recycling Roundtable Event at the George R. Brown Convention Center that included a presentation followed by a facility tour.
We were extremely impressed with the efforts in place to recycle, save energy and compost food and beverage. In 2011, Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center earned the LEED Silver certification for an existing building. The certification requires GRB operations to save energy, minimize water usage, reduce CO2 emissions, recycle waste materials and maintain high standards for indoor environment quality and operate the building as efficiently as possible. There is a very comprehensive list of how the GRB integrates environmental and social sustainability everyday.
