SUSTAINABILITY

When the gates of Levi’s® Stadium open in August 2014, the stadium will be the first United States professional football stadium to have achieved LEED Gold certification. Visitors and guests may view a live dashboard display featuring current energy measurements, water and air monitors, and other dynamic green features as the building operates daily. The dashboard is located inside Levi’s® Stadium in between the 49ers Museum Presented By Sony and 49ers Team Store.   

  • As of February 2014, the stadium had earned 44 points (39 is required for Gold certification).
  • The stadium is located on a sustainable site with accessible public transportation and bike path to lower greenhouse gases.
  • The stadium will self-consume PV-electricity generated from its three NRG Energy solar-paneled pedestrian bridges and its one solar-paneled roof deck—the NRG Solar Terrace.
  • 100% of the wood used in the Citrix Owners Suites is reclaimed wood from a local airplane hangar at Moffett Field in Mountain View, CA.
  • The stadium is using recycled and reclaimed building products where possible.
  • The stadium features a 27,000 square foot “Green Roof” on the top of the stadium’s suite tower.
  • The stadium will use reclaimed water for both potable and non-potable uses such as the playing field irrigation water.
  • The stadium’s concessionaire is focused on working with local suppliers to fulfill its farm-to-table menus, and will be composting and recycling to the greatest extent possible.
