Sustainability at Memphis' Renasant Convention Center

Memphis' Renasant Convention Center has created a Green Team to encourage good stewardship and sustainability on-site. Check this overview of developing initiatives to see how we can work with you to host your next green meeting.

Strategic Planning and Direction: Our Green Team will meet with you to customize a plan and provide recommendations to help you achieve your sustainability program goals.

Energy Efficiency: The modernized Renasant Convention Center features all-new, energy-saving LED lighting. Additionally, new HVAC systems feature a sophisticated energy management program, allowing greater control of heating and cooling in the venue while maximizing efficiency.

Food Waste: Our Green Team is in discussion with Clean Memphis to explore sustainability-focused food waste disposal programs in cooperation with the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel, our food and beverage provider. 

Paper Use: We work with clients on educating exhibitors to find alternative ways to share information that do not involve paper products.  

Recycling: Look for new recycling receptacles throughout the facility as we work to maximize our waste diversion rate. 

Water Usage: Low-water flush valves, lavatory aerators and other equipment designed to reduce water usage were built into our facility's modernization.
