Sustainability, Accessibility, and Inclusion at CloudWorld

We’re creating a sustainable, culturally inclusive event that’s accessible to everyone. Read on for more details on what you can expect to find in Las Vegas.

Building sustainability into our event

At Oracle, sustainability is serious business. We’ve set a goal to run our global operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025 and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Our technology innovations help organizations run their own businesses at lower costs and with less energy use. You’ll see our commitment to sustainability in Las Vegas as we strive to reduce, reuse, and recycle at CloudWorld.

  • Using less

    In the CloudWorld Hub, you’ll see aisles free of carpet, digital offerings instead of printed collateral, and booths built with recyclable and reusable materials.

  • Reducing carbon

    Oracle offset 100% of on-site carbon emissions at CloudWorld 2023. Our LEED Gold-certified venue participates in water conservation efforts and sources its energy from renewables like solar and wind.

  • Wasting less

    We use compostable serviceware at meals, provide water refill stations to replace plastic bottles, and recycle badges and lanyards. We’re increasing our diversion rate each year.

  • Giving back

    Leftover food and supplies are donated to non-profit organizations. Signage, vinyl, and fabric are upcycled by art programs at local schools.

  • Healthy eating

    All attendees are offered nutritious, plant-based meals, and we lower our carbon footprint by eliminating beef from all menus.

  • Green learning

    You’ll discover ways to use Oracle technology solutions to reduce emissions and increase efficiency at your organization.

Accessibility for everyone
