Las Vegas, NV - October 21-22, 2020 Virtual Education Microconferences - September 14-October 27


Our team at North America Smart Energy Week strives to create an experience that inspires and embodies a sustainable and clean future.

Monthly Sustainability Challenge

Make your commitment to sustainability more than just a challenge while at SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week.

JULY: Did you know that livestock-based food production causes about one-fifth of our global greenhouse gas emissions? This month try to replace your meat or dairy-based foods with plant-based alternatives. Going completely vegetarian or vegan right away can be a big challenge, so start small with Meatless Mondays and go on from there! Just one meal swap a week can make a difference in lowering your carbon footprint. Find inspiration for Meatless Monday meals here.

The team works hard to ensure that the conference demonstrates a real commitment to leadership in sustainability at large-scale conferences and convention centers. The team is focused on initiatives relating to energy consumption, sustainable food choices, and reducing waste.
