Our greenest Catalyst yet...

We're taking strides to make Catalyst 2024 a more sustainable event. We will be minimizing the amount of printed material, ditching bottled water and single-use plastic and paper cups, and will collect plastic name holders to reuse for future events.

Colorado State University’s commitment to sustainability research and education is reflected across the CSU Spur campus, from the campus’s focus on water, food, and human and animal health to its groundbreaking design, which provides learners at all levels with a window into efforts to address real-world sustainability challenges.

CSU Spur "Green" features:

  • In the water-focused Hydro building, a graywater system captures water from sinks and showers for the flushing of toilets, saving an estimated 264 gallons of water each day.
  • A stormwater capture system in an outdoor garden area will support irrigation in food production areas, and a 7,500 square foot agrivoltaic plot help meet the site’s electricity needs while allowing CSU researchers to optimize systems for food production combined with photovoltaic panels.
  • By preserving and restoring an existing building on the site, and connecting it with the new building, the project yielded estimated savings of 396.5 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
  • The Vida building has a 6,000 square-foot, 113 kW photovoltaic system on the roof and incorporated biophilic design principles.
  • A bridge connecting Hydro with the neighboring Terra building allowed for consolidation of boiler and chiller systems, freeing up extra space for a 2,800 square-foot research green roof on the Terra building.
  • In its first season, this green roof, a project of CSU agricultural research faculty, yielded more than 350 pounds of produce, most of which was donated to nonprofit partners supporting food security in neighboring communities.
  • A research greenhouse and multiple growth chambers will advance research in controlled environment agriculture and provide additional produce for use on-site and by community partners.


Some other Catalyst "Green" features:

  • Our swag vendor, Score Promotions has a built out ESG Plan and has provided us with sustainable swag options
  • Caterers will be providing compostable products and compost bins for meal waste
