Tour #2 : Golden 1 Center: The Gold Standard for Sustainable Sports Arenas
On this tour, participants will visit the Golden 1 Center in downtown Sacramento and see how it is designed and operated with sustainability as a top priority. As the world's first arena to be 100% solar powered and to have achieved LEED Platinum status, the Golden 1 Center aims to minimize its carbon footprint. The arena's unmatched food program sources 90% of its ingredients within a 150-mile radius, focusing on high-quality, healthy selections while also working with local food banks to distribute excess food items to the community and to transform food waste into fertilizers to support a network of local farms. From its innovative architecture and smart technology to partnering with Regional Transit to reduce vehicle miles traveled, the Golden 1 Center puts climate mitigation and adaptation into practice.
