Breathe Easy at the Ontario Convention Center

Green Meetings

The Ontario Convention Center is constantly striving to lead the way in offering and incorporating environmentally-friendly practices as a part of our green meetings and operations. We believe that it is up to each of us to do our part to help ensure we are being as conscious as possible to work towards reducing our environmental impact. This includes both small and large initiatives. We recycle most conference and meeting materials and donate unused food to local shelter. We installed an energy-efficient roof and building automation system that regulates entergy use for heat, power, and lighting to improve efficiency. The City of Ontario, California is also a participant in the Southern California Edison Demand Bid Program that helps keep the grid working at periods of extremely high demand.  Our goal is to make your meetings as green as possible all while making your meeting or conference a successful event!

Below are some of the top highlights of both our building and recycling program

Building

  • California Title 9 qualified, energy efficient thermoplastic, poured in place, white reflective roof
  • Variable frequency drives on convention center air handlers, largest chiller, cooling towers and water pumps, which lower the building's electrical usage
  • Sensory light switches in storage rooms and restrooms
  • Building automation system to oversee the use of heat, light and power for all meeting and exhibit space to ensure efficient use
  • Donate unused food to the local chapter of the Salvation Army
  • Participant in the Southern California Edison Demand Bid Program: As daily energy demands increase in peak seasons, we voluntarily decrease our electrical usage

Recycling

  • Cintas® for all paper recycling
  • Main Street Fibers for all cardboard recycling
  • ESPI and E-cycle Environmental for all computer parts and components
  • Daisy Supplies for all printer toner cartridges
  • City of Ontario Hazardous Waste Center for battery recycling
  • Participants in Metropolitan Water District of Southern California's "Pee Green™" program that replaced 36 water-flushing urinals with Falcon Waterfree urinals
  • Purchase locally grown products and organic produce whenever possible
  • Use only recyclable disposable wares
  • Purchase only sustainable and environmentally sound seafood products outlined by groups such as the Marine Stewardship Council
  • Work with environmentally friendly suppliers
  • Donate excess product to outreach programs for the elderly and less fortunate

We are continually striving to increase our Green program!
