What We’re Doing

Citizens Business Bank Arena is committed to reducing our environmental impact. We do so through ongoing efforts to save energy and water, recycle, purchase environmentally preferable products, and help raise awareness of environmental issues. Here are just a few of the projects we have implemented to minimize our environmental impact:

  • Created a recycling program for glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, paper and more
  • Switched cooling towers over to recycled water, which saves an estimated 5.5 million gallons of potable water annually
  • Installed more efficient tankless water heaters, which have cut the amount of energy we use to create hot water by about 50%
  • Installed waterless urinals throughout the facility
  • Reduced irrigation schedules from four to two days a week
  • Created program to purchase recycled-content paper products

 

The Arena is proud to participate in AEG 1EARTH, AEG’s corporate environmental sustainability program. Through AEG 1EARTH, we:

  • Exchange environmental best practices with other venues
  • Track our environmental performance on a monthly basis, measuring energy consumption, water usage, and waste diversion
  • Contribute to AEG’s progress towards its 2020 Environmental Goals

What You Can Do

We’re doing our best to reduce our environmental impact and hope you will join us in our efforts. Here are a few tips to make your visit to Citizens Business Bank Arena more environmentally friendly:

  • Consider walking, biking, taking public transit, or carpooling to the Arena to avoid traffic, save on gas and parking, and reduce your carbon footprint. Get directions here.  Help us increase our recycling rate by placing all waste and recyclables into designated receptacles – if you aren’t sure where to put something, please ask!
  • Turn off water faucets when you’re finished – let us know if you spot any leaks
  • Use only as many disposable items (e.g., paper towels, napkins, utensils) as you need
