Why should we participate?

This first-of-its-kind initiative is providing sports venues with a sustainability benchmark based on key performance indicators. Results help the industry understand what it does well and what opportunities exist for improving environmental and social impacts. Additionally, individual participants will receive a customized, confidential report specific to their performance against their peers, allowing them to celebrate where they excel and plan for opportunities to improve in the future.

Will my answers be public?

No, all answers will be reported anonymously and shared as part of a data set of all respondents. If your venue requires a non-disclosure agreement, contact our team at

How much does it cost?

Participation is at no cost for venues and teams! All participating teams and venues receive a customized, confidential report comparing their performance to the rest of the respondents.

Who should participate?

We are seeking data from professional, minor league, and collegiate stadiums, arenas, and field sports facilities at this time.
