A LEED Silver Facility
The Kentucky International Convention Center holds the distinction of being a LEED Silver certified facility. LEED, meaning Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance. We make an intentional effort to commit not only to our customers but to the environment.
We implemented cutting-edge procedures to improve recycling efforts, reduce the energy used for events, and sustainably sourced materials for construction of the new facility. For more information about our energy initiatives, contact our sales team. Learn more here .
A GBAC STAR Accredited Facility
When it comes to having a clean, sanitized environment, we mean business. Our facility was the first in Kentucky to receive accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) for our sanitization and operating procedures.
GBAC STAR is the gold standard of prepared facilities. This accreditation means that a facility has:
1. Established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
2. The proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious disease.
3. Highly skilled cleaning professionals who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.
