RSNA is committed to hosting one of the greenest and cleanest meetings in the industry. Our efforts focus on recycling, energy conservation, food and beverage service and transportation. Here are some things RSNA and McCormick Place are doing, and how you can help.
Through our recycling efforts at the 2012 meeting we had a facility diversion rate of 70 percent (compared to 63 percent in 2011).
Waste diversion is the prevention and reduction of generated waste through source reduction, recycling, reuse, or composting. Waste diversion generates a host of environmental, financial, and social benefits, including conserving energy, reducing disposal costs, and reducing the burden on landfills and other waste disposal methods.
