Pittsburgh Convention Center lists green results

Recycling works! Pittsburgh's David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the world's largest certified green building and the first of its kind in the world, released highlights of the facility's 2006 measurable green practices.

2006 Green Highlights include:

  • The recycling of 65,480 pounds of paper and cardboard.
  • Recycling 1,720 pounds of glass, plastic and aluminum.
  • The reclamation of more than 4.75 million gallons of water through the Convention Center's water treatment facility.
  • Reusing approximately 1,500 wooden pallets.
  • The utilization of the Convention Center's natural ventilation system for 58 event days (representing 33% of the Exhibit Hall event days) which eliminated the need for artificial heating and cooling of the space.

"As the results indicate, there is a significant environmental impact when meeting planners, exhibitors, attendees and the facility's staff pull together to conserve resources," explained Mark Leahy, general manager of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. "
