Air Quality

Take an active role in addressing local air quality issues through carbon reduction strategies.

Internal Culture: 

Full-time staff receive a pre-tax benefit for discounted Utah Transit Authority (UTA) passes.

Almost 80% of our indoor and outdoor vehicles satisfy low-emission guidelines (electric/propane).

Our Green Team partners encourage bicycle transit through providing bicycle racks and sponsoring GREENbike stations around the Salt Palace.

Our Pledge 12: Zero Waste has helped us cut landfill associated emissions. Through recycling and donation we estimate a reduction of 4,655.03 metric tons since 2017.


External Partnerships: 

We offer electric vehicle (EV) charging for staff and visitors.

We are following the seven mileposts laid out by The Utah Roadmap created by the University of Utah. The goal here is to help Utah lead out on climate & air quality issues.

We work with event clients to enforce policies such as no-idling for shuttle buses and/or trucks on loading docks.

We’re accountable for our role in Salt Lake’s air quality challenges and the public health concerns it creates. We are working with the Utah Climate Action Network, Sustainable Business Coalition, and local government on this.


New Targets: 

Check out our zero carbon goals for 2030 (13: Climate Action)!

Soon we hope to plant two trees for every event client survey we receive back.

We continue to work with Utah Transit Authority (UTA) for offering event passes.

While our inventory has 80% low-emission vehicles, the worst culprits are our trucks. We are working with Salt Lake County on using tier 3 fuels and finding EV solutions.
