North America’s Most Sustainable Stadium

North America’s Most Sustainable Stadium
“We set a goal of achieving the highest LEED rating because it was the right thing to do for our city and the environment. With this achievement, we have a powerful new platform to showcase to the industry and to our fans that building sustainably and responsibly is possible for a venue of any type, size and scale.”
- Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is North America’s first LEED Platinum professional sports stadium.
The lightweight EFTE material used for the roof petals and facade is more energy-efficient than glass and enhances daylighting. A 600,000-square-foot cistern under the stadium captures more than 2 million gallons of rainwater annually to mitigate flooding in Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood and provide irrigation for local trees. Bioswales improve the water quality and act as alternatives to storm sewers. More than 4,000 solar panels serve a dual function as carports for the stadium’s adjacent parking lot and, more importantly, a power source capable of generating 617 kilowatt-hours of energy per year—enough to power 10 Falcons games. The focus on sustainability extends into the community through connections to public transit, a network of bike trails, an urban garden and open recreation spaces.
