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
