Salford City Stadium is green
The Salford City Stadium has been designed to the meet the highest sustainability and environmental standards and considerations.
The stadium design has incorporated a variety of features and principles and hopes to attain a BREEAM rating of Very Good in the near future.
BREEAM is the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings, with 200,000 buildings with certified BREEAM assessment ratings and over a million registered for assessment since it was first launched in 1990.
BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building’s environmental performance.
A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance, which are set against established benchmarks, to evaluate a building’s specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes.
Green on the pitch, green off it
The management team is committed to the new stadium being both sustainable and sensitive to the environment.
As part of the Salford City Stadium’s environmental strategy, the stadium’s management team is committed to ensuring that responsible energy management and use of resources; measurement and control of our energy consumption and the use of recyclable products are all central to the way the stadium is run.
The stadium has consulted widely on a travel plan to ensure that sustainable travel is part of the ethos of both match day and non match day access to the stadium.
The Salford City Stadium has registered with the European Healthy Stadia Network and is committed to becoming an affiliated stadium.
Healthy stadia are those which promote the health of visitors, fans, players, employees and the surrounding community; places where people can go to have a positive healthy experience playing or watching sport.
The Salford City Stadium will work with partners at the Salford City Reds Foundation, Salford City Council and the Greater Manchester Sports Partnership to support community focused programmes aimed at addressing a broad range of issues such as health (inequalities), social inclusion and urban regeneration.
