Going Abroad: Case Studies of Sports Greening Successes in Europe

As the green sports movement has taken off in North America, sports venues in Europe and across the world have been making great strides in sustainable operations as well. While things like units of measurement and certifying bodies may vary quite a bit, the general principles of green venue operations are common regardless of locale: reduce/eliminate landfill waste, conserve energy and water and strive for maximun efficiency, eliminate toxic chemicals from cleaning processes, support alternative transportation options for fans, and seek out cutting-edge solutions like LED lighting, onsite solar, and rainwater harvesting when possible.

On this webinar, the Green Sports Alliance will shine a light on two prominent and very high-performing international venues: the O2 World in Berlin and Aviva Stadium in Dublin. With comprehensive sustainable operations systems in place and incredible results to show, these two venues have a great deal of valuable insights to share with the Green Sports Alliance. We hope you can join us to learn more!
