It's Good Being Green.


For the first time, Connect has acquired energy offsets
to go energy neutral for our event in August!


In partnership with Salt Palace Convention Center and its rooftop solar array, we are acquiring 159 Solar Renewable Energy Credits through the center's renewable energy program. Salt Palace is awarded these energy offsets because it draws solar/renewable energy to power its facility. Twenty percent of the facility's annual power demand is supplied by its rooftop solar array. We are so grateful for their partnership in helping us create the most sustainable event we can. As an added bonus, the facility uses the funding generated for this program to further enhance the sustainability elements of its operation. View certificate.


Keep an eye out for other great sustainability elements at Connect once you step into Salt Palace in a few weeks, and stop by the CSR Lounge to share your own ideas in the Sustaina-Tree Forest.
