Industry giant AEG is pushing new environmental standards for the live-entertainment industry, meaning that arenas could be pushed by potential vendors to adopt green management practices.
AEG is a major player in the arena industry: Besides owning Los Angeles’s Staples Center, the firm manages Kansas City’s Sprint Center, Portland’s Rose Garden, and Minneapolis’s Target Center, among others. So when the firm says it wants to be a leader in green arenas, others will listen. Indeed, the stated goal from AEG is pretty strong: “to be the leaders in our sector, the sports and live entertainment industries, by establishing the environmental standards by which other such organizations can measure themselves. To accomplish this, we are attempting to detail, measure and manage all aspects of our environmental performance.”
