Walking the Talk: Going Green with the Atlanta Falcons

Congratulations to Falcons Fans and the City of Atlanta!
Congratulations to Falcons Fans and the City of Atlanta!

You probably know that Atlanta Falcons are the second best (deflatable, ahem, debatable) team in football, but did you know that the entire Falcons organization is going green?

Spearheaded by GM, Thomas Dimitroff - and his own personal passion for the environment - the Atlanta Falcons Green Initiative has grown into an organization-wide movement helping to educate and empower not only Falcons staff and players, but the entire community of Atlanta.

Atlanta Falcons Green Initiative

The mission of the initiative is threefold:

  • Leveraging the Falcons' high-profile brand in the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia to promote large-scale public actions that further green causes
  • Partnering with the Georgia Dome (and soon-to-be Mercedes-Benz Stadium) to make sure game days are as environmentally friendly as possible
  • Walking the talk as a business, proactively reducing the environmental footprint of all Falcons facilities through policy changes and aggressive green programs

Here are just some of the ways the Falcons have reduced waste, conserved energy, and limited their use of finite resources:

  • A retention pond is used to water all practice fields
  • 9,500 pounds of paper and plastic waste is recycled per month
  • All energy usage is tracked and analyzed, then used to establish annual goals
  • A game day recycling program
  • When evaluating potential business partners, the Falcons take into consideration their green committments

Mercedez-Bens Stadium

You may have heard that the Georgia Dome will hold it's final event in March 2017. The Falcons new stadium (and the home of 2019's Big Game, Super Bowl LIII) will incorporate the latest in sustainable advancements related to design, construction, and operations.  Here are just some of the highlights:

  • It will be the first sports facility to have a water capture and reuse system that will help cool the building and provide onsite irrigation
  • Over 4,000 solar PV panels will be installed on the stadium site and on the Georgia World Congress Center campus and will generate enough solar energy in a year to power over nine Falcons home games
  • The new property layout encourages bicycle and alternative fuel vehicle use

Another Big Event in Atlanta this Year

The 2017 Net Impact Conference will be held October 26 - 28 at the Georgia World Congress Center - yes, right next to where the Falcons play.  Register now to exlpore the city of Atlanta and discover your Path to Purpose.
