We’re working with MAX venues and partners to find ways to recycle, reduce energy consumption, and reduce waste. Here are ways the MAX team and its partners are working to keep MAX green:
Venue — Los Angeles Convention Center
When considering venues for MAX, the planning team takes care to find venues that are actively involved with green initiatives.
In 2008, the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) was certified in Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design, and the center is working toward enhancing that certification with new Earthfriendly programs like thermal storage and creating green space for its community.
On October 18, 2010, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded LACC the highly coveted Gold certification in LEED-EB in Operations and Maintenance (O&M), a two-step elevation bypassing Silver certification. LACC now becomes the largest U.S. convention center to achieve LEED-EB O&M Gold certification.
Los Angeles Convention Center environmental initiatives:
- 100% eco-friendly public cafes and restaurants
- Food waste diversion program
- 95% food product cleaning materials
- 100% free-range organic grass-fed beef
- Participation in the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Restaurant Program
- Sustainable roofing reflectance and emittance
- Solar heating attenuation
- Efficient lighting
- Air-conditioning efficiencies
- Efficient energy conservation management
- Renewable energy (solar power and natural energy)
- Recycling programs (LACC annually diverts and recycles over tons of goods)

- Chemical-free water treatment technology
- Restroom water conservation
- Kitchen dishwasher efficiency
