Big venues such as arenas and stadia have a huge demand for energy and therefore a considerable impact on the environment. Many of those venues are aware of that and have already implemented environmental management schemes through their facility management. Nonetheless there is still a large energy saving potential to be adressed by means of changing behavioral patterns that so far remained largeley untapped.
In close cooperation with the EnergyAgency.NRW the Green Music Iniative launched the new“Greener Arena Network” which aims at understanding how this energy saving potentials can be adequately adressed. Together with representatives of stadia and arenas we already discussed perspectives on this approach in a first workshop in December 2013. A follow-up workshop will now be held on 3rd of April at Halle Münsterland to deepen our common understanding of the challenges, potentials and necessary next steps.
More background information on the Responsible Arena Network is available on this website.
