Super Bowl 50 demonstrates sustainability in the LEED-certified Levi’s Stadium

Published on Written by Posted in LEED

This coming Sunday, Super Bowl 50 will bring together the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos for a final showdown of the 2015 season of the National Football League. 

The Super Bowl 50 Host Committee is dedicated to demonstrating sustainability throughout the event, which involves a focus on reducing the game’s impact on climate change, as well as using resources and materials responsibly. In addition to an awareness of net positive opportunities, the game will also be held in the LEED-certified Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., home to the San Francisco 49ers.

In July 2014, Levi’s Stadium became the first professional football stadium in the United States to receive LEED Gold certification as new construction. Upon opening, the stadium accumulated 41 points, which reflected high performance strategies and solutions in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
