Sustainable Denver Summit

Please join us for the second Sustainable Denver Summit, which will take place on Monday, November 14, 2016 at the Downtown Denver Sheraton.

The Sustainable Denver Summit brings together hundreds of leaders from across the city’s business, nonprofit and civic communities to develop and announce commitments for new and expanded initiatives that will help Denver achieve its ambitious 2020 Sustainability Goals.

Last year’s event was a huge success - We sold out, received incredibly positive feedback in response to our post-event questionnaire, and most important, received over 100 written commitments to action. This year’s event, to be held on Monday, November 14, is going to be bigger and even better. Registration is open now through November 4, so register today!

The 2016 Summit will focus on producing strategies and commitments in the following areas:

  • Energy Solutions
  • Affordable Housing
  • Density & Mobility
  • Water Systems
  • Materials & Waste Management
  • Food & Health Systems
