play_clean.jpgThe Pepsi Center is the first sports arena in the U.S. to claim “100 percent green” status, announcing it will buy enough renewable energy to offset all electricity used at the arena.

Arena officials also announced a program to encourage fan involvement in environmental issues, a package of improvements to the 9-year-old facility, and the arena’s involvement in the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Climate Leaders” program – again, the first in the U.S. by a sports arena.

The renewable energy certificates are being purchased through an agreement with Georgia-based Sterling Planet.

The arena will provide single-stream recycling of plastic cups, all bottles and clean paper products. The arena’s “Play Clean” program will promote recycling aamong the more than 2 million fans that attend events at the venue and will
seek the promotional assistance of the sports and entertainment stars playing at the arena.

The 19,000-seat Pepsi Center is privately owned by Kroenke Sports Enterprises.
