SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

Venue
The University of Washington is considered a global leader in sustainability policies and practices. The conference venue, the University of Washington Husky Union Building, has received Gold level LEED certification, thus our environmental impact will be limited by the building's design for water efficiency, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality.

Conference Consumables and Waste Management
In hosting our conference on campus we will be utilizing existing partnerships with catering and composting companies that focus on sustainable, locally sourced food and eco-conscious waste management.

Bay Laurel Catering sources ingredients from local suppliers that follow sustainable practices in growing and production and that are pesticide and hormone free. Delivery vehicles are biodiesel fueled, all detergents, dishwashing liquids, and other cleaning chemicals are eco-friendly.
