The City and County of Denver and the Office of Sustainability have developed goals for the year 2020 to conserve our resources and keep Denver a great place to live for many years to come.

In support of these goals, and through our own initiatives, Denver Arts & Venues cultivated the SMARTER Sustainable Arts & Venues campaign developing the following goals for all of our facilities focusing our efforts to reduce our environmental impact:

ENERGY - Reduce our overall consumption by 20% based on 2014 levels

FOOD - Have 20% of our venue food entirely grown or processed within Colorado

WATER - Partner with Denver Water to reduce our overall water usage by 20% by 2020 based on 2014 levels

WASTE - Achieve an annual minimum average diversion rate of 60% in all A&V facilities

MATERIALS - Use 100% recyclable or compostable disposable products at A&V events
