From day one, everyone at the Convention Center treated us so well. They knew what they were doing, even at times when we didn’t. We were able to collaborate with them, and they were extremely responsive.

Spectra Total Environmental Plan

Sustainability has become an ever present initiative in the venue management industry as it exemplifies the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit. Spectra and the Duke Energy Convention Center, in particular, have made great strides in diverting waste from our landfills and stretching energy efficiency goals to make a positive impact.

The following accomplishments highlight the initiatives of the Center:

  • Installation of a 101.0 kw DC photovoltaic solar array on the roof of the Exhibit Halls
  • LED lighting upgrade in 1st floor Exhibit Halls
  • Green certified soap and eco-friendly paper products in all public restrooms
  • Recycling of used cooking oil
  • Front of house composting to encourage attendees to contribute to conservation        
  • Multi-stream recycling units
