Able Engineering recently announced its decision to join the Green Sports Alliance. The Green Sports Alliance, according to its mission, “leverages the cultural and market influence of sports to promote healthy, sustainable communities where we live and play,” and encouraging sports leagues, their teams, venues, partners and fans to embrace energy and water efficiency, renewable energies, sustainable food and other socially responsible practices.

“We joined the Green Sports Alliance because we believe, along with our stadium clients, that we are all responsible to make every concerted effort to provide sustainable environments regardless of the real estate vertical,” Able Services President Mark Kelly said. “It makes total sense for us to join because that’s where our stadium clients and prospects are, want to be and see value in. They, like we at Able, are constantly testing, researching and looking for new sustainability ideas. Efficiency-driven programs related to waste, water and energy make their properties more appealing to today’s fans. And sustainably, well-operated stadiums, along with their teams, are ambassadors for their cities. Sometimes, stadiums are the only property that visitors and their families will set a foot in for a particular city. A clean, well-operated stadium with a “best in class” sustainability program can be a very important touchpoint for many fans, and enables a repeatable positive experience for many years.”
