Sustainability at Memphis' Renasant Convention Center

Memphis' Renasant Convention Center encourages good stewardship and sustainability onsite with our planners and promoters. Some of the initiatives are listed below and we are always looking for opportunities to enhance these efforts. Let us see how we can work with you to host your next green meeting.

Strategic Planning and Direction: Our Event Manager 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: We have partnered with Clean Memphis and Project Green Fork to donate product along with exploring sustainability-focused food waste disposal programs in cooperation with the RK Group, 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: We provide for recycling receptacles as needed for various events 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.
