Our Efforts Toward Sustainability

At the Hurst Conference Center, we understand the responsibility we have to make environmentally sustainable choices for our business. Bringing groups and individuals together at the Hurst Conference Center is only possible through the resources granted by the world around us. Inspiring progress and driving connection is what we do, and with our sustainability initiative, we hope to keep improving our practices as well. See more information below about how the Hurst Conference Center is making smarter choices for the future.

LEED Certification

We always want to be improving
your experience at the Hurst Conference Center. To maximize the potential of our
spaces and to reduce our carbon footprint, Hurst Conference Center is becoming LEED

The Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design certification was developed by the U.S. Green Building
Council in an effort to hold commercial buildings to a higher standard of
energy saving practices. The Hurst Conference Center is taking part in the
program in order to understand the best methods to operate under
environmentally conscious standards.

Eliminating Water Bottle

though plastic water bottles are completely recyclable, it can be hard for
every single individual who drinks from a plastic water bottle to find an
appropriate recycling bin. We are preventing this issue by eliminating water
bottles from our conference center. This will ultimately reduce water bottle
consumption at our facility by about 6,000 cases.

an alternative, we’ve incorporated Just Water for our staff and attendees. Just
Water allows us to almost completely cut out single use plastics from the Hurst
Conference Center since the carton is made of sugar cane, making it 100%

Saving Energy

Technological advances are
becoming more and more accessible to individuals and to businesses, and the
Hurst Conference Center is no exception. This means that we have to be
cognizant of the energy we use. As a part of our going green efforts, the Hurst
Conference Center is making the change to all LED lightbulbs. LED bulbs are
more reliable since they last longer and only require 3% of the energy their
conventional counterparts need to light up our meeting spaces.

Another way that the Hurst
Conference Center is making energy efficient choices in the design of our
building includes using tinted windows. Without taking away too much natural
lighting from your event or meeting room, these windows reduce the amount of
energy it takes to cool our spaces by increasing the amount of heat that
reflects off of our windows.

Responsible Partners

By partnering with local
farmers, we are able to reduce the amount of waste created by our staff and
attendees. Any left-over food our kitchen produces is given to the farmers as
food for their pigs, and anything that is not able to be fed to their animals
is composted.

Hurst Conference Center is proud
to partner with Hilton Garden Inn as well, which shares a parking deck with our
building for attendees and hotel guests. We always encourage our guests to take
the complimentary shuttles from the DFW airport for a greener transportation

Our event center offers covered
parking for guests; however, to encourage ride shares, there are fewer parking
spaces than full capacity would require. Our efforts to go green involve
everyone who attends events and meetings at Hurst Conference Center, and we
thank you for helping us advance toward a more environmentally sustainable
