Music City Center makes it a priority to focus on environmental sustainability. We are proud to be LEED Gold certified for new construction by the U.S. Green Building Council as we continue to integrate sustainable practices throughout our facility.
REAL stands for Responsible, Epicurean, and Agricultural Leadership, and is a nationally recognized mark of excellence for food and foodservice operators committed to holistic nutrition and environmental stewardship. We are proud to be the first REAL certified convention center in 2014. We renewed our certification in 2019.
We are a member of the Corporate Sustainability Roundtable led by Nashville nonprofit Urban Green Lab. This group brings together area corporations to learn, network, foster new skills and policies, inform leadership, and exchange best practices to make sustainable workplaces a priority.
Music City Center is an inaugural participant of Get Food Smart TN, a statewide initiative to reduce food waste.
Nashville was selected as a pilot city for the Natural Resource Defense Council’s initiative to reduce food waste. We are proud to partake in this movement to develop policies and actions to reduce food waste, including participation in the Mayor’s Food Saver Challenge.
We are proud recipients of the Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Award. In 2013, we received the award in the Building Green category, and in 2016 we received the award in the Pursuit of Excellence category.
