Green Events Application

On April 8th 2010, San Antonio became one of the only cities in the nation to incorporate green practices into parades and events when City Council passed the Green Events Certification ordinance.

Event organizers must complete a Green Events Scorecard and submit an application listing their green initiatives to the Office of Sustainability at least 2 weeks before the event. This policy is mandatory for medium-scale and large-scale events located on city-owned facilities.

  • Medium-scale events
    • 1,000 to 2,000 people 
    • must achieve a Silver level or higher
  • Large-scale events
    • greater than 2,000 people 
    • must achieve a Gold level or higher
