At the Greater Tacoma Convention Center, we strive to make your meeting experience as green and sustainable as possible in our day-to-day operations, from sourcing local foods whenever possible to using environmentally friendly cleaning products in 90% of the building. View our Green Sheet to learn more about our standard and available green initiatives, including our Sustainability Station, recycling and composting efforts, lighting and energy controls, water saving bathrooms, recycled carpet, and Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations are located in Parking Lot A. To utilize a charging station, attendees must pay for parking within the lot separately. A ChargePoint Network card is required to use the charging stations and there is a $3.00 per charging session fee. For more information regarding the charging stations please see the ChargePoint Network.

Want to do more? As an event planner, you can increase your sustainability effort by participating in the Green Conventions and Conferences Certification Program. The few extra steps you take to be green can add up to a lot of saved emissions.

"They were open and flexible to our many special requests (organic food, alternate sourcing, composting of food scraps). The food presentation was wonderful, and it tasted delicious."
