The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced that the 2008 International CES will "go green" by reducing its carbon footprint and with the use of sustainable and energy efficient practices. Produced by CEA, the 2008 International CES will run Jan. 7-10, 2008, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

CEA has formed a partnership with Carbonfund.org, a provider of voluntary climate solutions, to reduce the carbon footprint of the event. Carbonfund.org will offset the approximately 20,000 tons of carbon associated with the International CES by investing in a combination of certified renewable energy, reforestation, and energy efficiency projects.            

“In addition to offsetting the carbon emissions of all CES venues, freight, shuttle buses and hotel rooms, we will provide attendees with the opportunity to offset their airline travel via www.CESweb.org and kiosks on the show floor,” said Gary Shapiro, President of CEA.

CES will also debut a TechZone dedicated to environmentally and economically sustainable technologies which contribute to the social and cultural growth of the developing world. To remind attendees of their offsetting options and provide tips for a ‘greener’ CES experience, CEA will produce a “Greening CES” TV segment to be broadcast in all attendee hotel rooms, and attendees will also have more opportunities to recycle aluminum cans, plastic, paper, and glass at CES.

CEA is taking additional steps to make the 2008 International CES more sustainable, including working with its Las Vegas-based vendors to use "green’" solutions at the event itself. About 75% of all food containers and utensils used by the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) to serve CES attendees will be fully biodegradable and all surplus food will be donated to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission; recycled carpet will be used throughout the Central Hall of the LVCC; and all attendee literature will be printed on post-consumer recycled paper with soy ink. Likewise, only non-hazardous cleaning solvents and soaps will be used by LVCC staff and all light bulbs, batteries, and electronics used by the show will be recycled and diverted from landfills.
