A Partnership to a Better Climate.
Sustainability is a core value of librarianship. A commitment that holds "to be truly sustainable, an organization or community must embody practices that are environmentally sound, economically feasible, and socially equitable."
In support of ALA’s leadership on sustainability efforts, LibLearnX offers an opportunity to promote environmentally conscious policies focused on resource conservation and sustainable business practices.
LibLearnX demonstrates this commitment as we partner with attendees through the registration process.

The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center team is committed to reducing environmental impacts and helping its customers meet their sustainability goals. Just announced! The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (NOENMCC) has achieved its first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.
The City of New Orleans dedicates resources to limit the impact on their communities due to increased travel. There are plenty of ways to explore New Orleans outside of renting a car. The city’s flat geography lends itself to the easiest biking around, see the city in a new way on a bike tour or grab a Blue Bike if you want to strike out on your own. And of course, you can’t forget the streetcar, one of the most leisurely ways to get around town. Hop on the St. Charles line to head towards Audubon Park, taking in the beauty of the Garden District on the way, or take the streetcar along Canal Street to see all there is to do at City Park. Another public transportation option is the RTA bus system.
GES (Event Signage and Decoration)
GES promotes a higher level of social responsibility with green programs and initiatives both in-house and with their facility recycling partnerships at show sites. And they are considered an industry thought-leader in green events and exhibitions. Learn more about GES' implementation of several initiatives in their warehouses and with clients at venues around the world.
Kushner & Associates (Shuttle Service)
Shuttles are the most eco-friendly option for point-to-point transportation versus ride share, resulting in lower CO2 emissions and lowering traffic congestion. Kushner & Associates designs the most efficient transportation systems possible utilizing the fewest number of motorcoaches traveling the shortest distances possible. In addition to training drivers to reduce idling and the use of A/C whenever feasible and practical to decrease fuel consumption, Kushner participates in a carbon-offset program to mitigate the shuttle’s carbon footprint. Learn more about Kushner & Associate's green initiatives.
