Cowboys' new stadium Enters EPA's Premier Environmental Stewardship Program
The Dallas Cowboys and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently announced the Cowboys’ intent to be the first sports stadium to gain recognition in the EPA’s National Environmental Performance Track Program. The Dallas Cowboys have been overseeing the construction and design of the club’s new stadium set to open in the Summer of 2009, including a host of environmental design, construction, and operational initiatives.
"Proposing to complete green design initiatives is only the first step to true environmental footprint reduction, stated Jack Hill, stadium general manager for the Dallas Cowboys. "The challenge lies in capturing performance and cost savings, ensuring initiatives are effective, and always raising the bar. EPA’s NEPT program gives us a framework to get it done. The Cowboys want to go beyond all the ‘green’ hype to set goals, deliver on those goals, and be accountable to our fans and public."
