Croke Park a becomes world's first sustainable stadium

Fri 6th Aug 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

In May 2010 Dublin’s Croke Park Stadium gained BS 8901:2009 certification, making it the world’s first stadium to receive this prestigious award for sustainable event management.

 

Stadium Director Peter McKenna said: “We decided from the start there could be no half measures when it came to sustainable development – it was going to be the way we managed all our processes at Croke Park. From our organisational principles right through to all our operational activities and those of our contractors, sustainability is now the key pillar in the way we manage our business.”

 

BS 8901 is a sustainability management system for events. This relatively new standard is designed to help events organisations recognise their impact on the economy, society and environment. It aims to maximise positive impacts, minimise negative impacts and foster balanced, enduring growth.

 

Who is BS 8901 for?

 

  • Venues (hotels, conferences, festivals, stadiums etc )
  • Suppliers of event equipment, marquees, stage gear etc
  • Marketing and design companies
  • Tourist destinations (museums, gardens, historical sites)
  • Local Authorities that run public events
  • Private companies that wish to demonstrate ethics to 8901 by third party certification

 

Don’t miss this FREE webinar on Sustainable Events, on 11 August at 10:00 am. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from Croke Park Stadium, first hand, how to embed Sustainability at Operational level and discover the main benefits of adopting this standard.
