The U.S. Green Building Council has released its LEED in Motion: Venues report which showcases high impact LEED certification projects such as convention centers, sports venues, performing arts centers, and community centers, and their ability to transform their environmental, social and economic footprint.

By incorporating green practices, venues around the world are positively impacting what the report calls the “triple bottom line” (people, planet, profit) while inspiring and educating others to be proactive in the areas of social responsibility and sustainability.

The economic and environmental statistics in the report are also revealing. The anticipated growth in large convention, stadium, event venues and their impact on the U.S. economy are huge, to say nothing of  the billions of dollars saved on energy, water, and maintenance if they are LEED certified.
