As the University of Washington football team prepares for its first home game of the season, the Huskies have already earned a No. 1 ranking as the most sustainable football school.
Alaska Airlines Arena, Husky Stadium to promote green initiatives at sporting events
The University of Washington Athletic Department's sustainability program has chosen GreenDrop Recycling Stations to help implement their strategic sustainability plans for waste diversion at Alaska Airlines Arena and the newly renovated Husky Stadium.
Husky Stadium is going green for this Saturday’s huge match-up against Oregon, and we’re not talking about the Ducks’ uniforms.
The University of Washington is getting national attention and recognition for its recycling and sustainable efforts at Husky Stadium. The National Resources Defense Council, anational non-profit environmental group, recently featured the stadium's recycling program in a report and called the university a “game changer” on college campuses.
The newly renovated Husky stadium is starting the fall season with a win for the environment. Today, the National Resources Defense Council featured Husky Stadium in its list of ten “Collegiate Game Changers”—University athletic programs that excel in green practices. A case study highlighting the stadium’s sustainable accomplishments is included in a report by the council.
Thanks to preservation, recycling and environmentalism throughout its $250 million renovation, Husky Stadium is expected to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) medal from the United States Green Building Council.
The new, 80,000-square-foot football operations center on the stadium’s remodeled west end is also expected to get LEED-medal recognition.
