AIHce EXP Goes Green

Green Initiatives in Phoenix

AIHce EXP attendees told us they wanted a more environmentally friendly and responsible conference.  Here are some of the green, sustainable, and safety initiatives AIHA will implement in Phoenix:

  • Digital Advance Program and Final Program (we will offer a PDF version for you to print a copy if desired) with reduced page counts referencing online session descriptions, exhibitor information, and background details 
  • Ticketless registration
  • Digital Pathway Passport game 
  • Digital signage outside meeting rooms and for directions
  • Badges made from recycled materials, which can also be recycled
  • Signs made of eco-board
  • Recycle stations for paper, cans and bottles, and other items
  • Water refill stations allowing attendees to refill personal water bottles

The Phoenix Convention Center is also a leader in practicing green initiatives, including:

  • GBAC STARâ„¢ Accredited Facility
  • The West Building has been awarded the LEED Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council
  • The roof of the West Building hosts a solar-power-generating plant that is expected to reduce the convention center's carbon dioxide pollution by 95 metric tons each year
  • The North Building features a water harvesting garden which recycles condensation from the air conditioning units for irrigation purposes
  • A comprehensive recycling program that includes the collection of paper, plastic, cardboard and glass materials with receptacles throughout the facility
  • A green purchasing program which recently included the purchase of 31,000 KI Daylight chairs made from recycled car battery casings and seatbelts

Here's what you can do!

Here are a few tips you can do to go green while attending AIHce EXP 2023:

  • Consider donating to a carbon offset program of your choice (or your company's) to balance your AIHce carbon footprint
  • Use public transportation or ride share
  • Go wireless (rather than print)! Carry your mobile device and use our free Wi-Fi to note your "favorites" (sessions, speakers, attendees, and exhibitors) and take notes in the AIHce EXP mobile app.
  • Recycle your paper, plastic, and glass in the receptacles provided throughout the convention center.
  • Bring a reusable water bottle to refill at the touchless water stations throughout the convention center
  • Create a digital business card to share contact information with attendees, exhibitors, and others
