The National Institute of Building Sciences will moderate a session on reducing the energy and water use of sports venues June 29 as part of the Green Sports Alliance Summit in Sacramento, Calif.

Building on the findings in the report “Taking the Field: Advancing Energy and Water Efficiency in Sports Venues” released earlier this year, the session, “Make It Last: Sustainable Solutions for Existing Venues,” will cover how venues ranging from more than 100 years to less than a decade old are finding sustainable solutions to modernize operations. Operators and partners from Wrigley Field, KeyArena, American Airlines Arena, and Citi Field will highlight obstacles, ranging from limited capital to challenging infrastructure, they overcame and strategies they used to achieve greater sustainability.

With the theme “PLAY GREENER: Engaging Fans, Athletes & Communities,” the Summit, to be held June 27-29 at the Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings, will focus on bringing about positive environmental and social impact across fan bases and surrounding communities.
