setting the sustainability standard


At the Javits Center, sustainability has become a critical focus in an effort to improve the quality of life for our employees, visitors, surrounding neighborhood and ecosystem. Ultimately, we are striving to be a model of sustainable practices for the exhibition industry, buildings across New York City and the surrounding community. We are working with several institutions to study the impact of our conservation efforts while introducing new elements that we believe will have a maximum impact on the environment. As a part of a recent renovation, we installed more than 100 energy-efficient HVAC units, new energy-efficient lighting and new recycling containers throughout the facility. We also invested in a cutting-edge energy dashboard that allows designated engineers and employee to monitor consumption levels for electric, gas and water. With all of these new initiatives, we have achieved LEED Silver certification by meeting the goal of exceeding New York State’s mandate of reducing energy and water consumption by 20% by the year 2020.

looking ahead


Through our innovative sustainability efforts, the Javits Center is poised to sustain a green environment far into the future. Most importantly, our dedication to sustainability embodies everything that the Javits Center stands for: world-class technological innovation, resourcefulness and an unrivaled commitment to excellence.
