At SXSW Eco, AEG announced their release of the 2016 AEG Sustainability Report. They also revealed their goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.

The company is committed to reducing their eco-footprint. So far, they have been able to reduce emissions by 13 percent—an equivalent to eliminating 3,200 vehicles on the road.

Their goals for 2020 are to reduce GHG emissions by 3.2 percent per year, reduce potable water at water-stressed sites by 2.3 percent each year, and divert 70 percent of waste from landfill.

“We are excited to share another chapter of our sustainability story and to announce AEG’s new 2020 Environmental Goals,” says John Marler, senior director, energy and environment for AEG. “We put a lot of thought into these goals, and I hope our story inspires further action on the important issues of greenhouse gas reduction, potable water conservation, and waste reduction.”

Highlights from the 2016 report included The O2 in London reaching 100 percent sourcing of renewable electricity, they’ve reduced annual potable water consumption by 27 million liters and the Los Angeles Convention Center has received LEED Gold recertification.

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.  

The redesign includes more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space alongside a maximum capacity of 2,500 people. The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.
