Green Star Certification

Member Announcement - We are delighted to release the updated 2019 IACC Green Star Certification. In this year's survey you will find new standards and a completely new survey for non-residential venues.

To benefit from this important environmental initiative, IACC requires members to either subscribe for the first time or update their past adherence to the Code. The Code of Sustainability is valid for 2 years and renewal is required bi-annually. 

By signing the Code of Sustainability, IACC members agree to support IACC’s Environmental Policy, to adopt the tenets of the code, and to join other members in an association-wide effort to continually strive for greater sustainability.

IACC ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT

IACC shall be a leader in creating environmental awareness among IACC member properties and their clients. We do this by communicating the initiatives that we have researched and identified as having a lesser environmental impact; by encouraging IACC members to adopt these environmentally responsible practices into their business operations; and by continuous improvement to our own management efforts; all with the goal of reducing our carbon footprint and environmental impact.

CODE OF SUSTAINABILITY

IACC has a rigorous Code of Sustainability which includes 60 tenets in the following areas:

IACC monitors and updates the Code periodically in order to ensure that it reflects state-of-the-art best practices. When IACC members sign the Code of Sustainability, they certify that their venue supports IACC’s Environmental Policy and they join with other members in striving for more sustainable, environmentally responsible industry policies and practices.

Members are required to update the status of their adherence to applicable tenets in the Code on an annual basis and IACC offers three tiers of participation. Members that achieve 100% of the Code qualify for the Platinum Tier; those that achieve 85% qualify for the Gold Tier; and those that achieve 75% qualify for the Silver Tier.

IACC is pleased to publish its leaders in environmental responsibility:
