AEG RELEASES 2015 SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
AEG Releases 2015 Sustainability Report and Shows Progress Toward 2020 Environmental Goals
AEG has released its 2015 Sustainability Report, demonstrating the company’s continued commitment to reducing the environment impact of its business. AEG, the leading sports and entertainment company, launched AEG 1EARTH, its corporate sustainability program, in 2007, and published the industry’s first sustainability report in 2010.
Now releasing its fourth report, AEG shares its progress towards the company’s 2020 environmental goals based on environmental performance metrics collected from its 76 owned and managed venues in the AEG Facilities portfolio.
The 2015 report highlights several of AEG’s recent achievements in the area of sustainability, including:
- STAPLES Center (Los Angeles, California) became the 1st NBA arena and 1st U.S. NHL arena to install LED sports lights
- Citizens Business Bank Arena (Ontario, California) became the 1st U.S. professional hockey arena to make hockey ice with recycled water
- Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre (Englewood, Colorado) installed a 750-foot living wall, the largest in the U.S. and the only living wall inside a music amphitheatre
- AEG achieved a 63% waste diversion rate across all owned and managed venues
- AEG reduced water usage per attendee by 23% since 2007, exceeding the company’s 2020 goal to reduce by 20%
- 85% of AEG venues participated in Earth Hour to raise awareness of environmental issues
“We are excited to share our latest sustainability report and showcase AEG’s accomplishments from the past year,” said John Marler, AEG’s Senior Director of Energy and Environment. “While we still have much to do to achieve our long-term goals, we completed several innovative projects in 2014, and look forward to building on those successes going forward.”
In addition to data on AEG’s environmental performance metrics, the report also features examples of the AEG 1EARTH program in action at multiple iconic venues worldwide, including The O2 in London, STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, and Perth Arena in Perth.
