The Minneapolis Convention Center strives to be the best facility possible for our clients, our staff and the entire community. Part of that mission includes integrating a no-waste mentality. This mindset has become the cornerstone of our sustainability program.

We are committed to using our resources responsibly and assisting our customers in achieving their sustainability goals for meetings and conventions. Recently, the convention center maintains a Level One certification to the ASTM standard for the evaluation and selection of venues for environmentally sustainable meetings, events, trade shows and conferences. This is one of nine standards introduced by the meetings, conventions, exhibitions and events industry to provide event planners and suppliers with specifications for producing events in a more sustainable manner.
