Philly @eagles Squeeze Sustainable Value from Football Stadium #susty #green #nfl #csr via @triplepundit
Just to underscore how far things have come in just a few short years, back in 2005 it was a big deal when the Eagles went down to St. Louis to play the Rams in what was billed as a “climate-neutral” football game , in which the group StopGlobalWarming.org arranged to purchase offsets for energy used by the stadium. Now the Eagles will be able to generate their own renewable energy at their own stadium, with the potential to become a renewable energy supplier to the grid. For all the sports facilities, industrial parks and other built environments in which large swaths of real estate sit unused for long periods of time, renewable energy is providing property owners with a new resource to build a better bottom line.
