From innovative planning and design to conscious construction and operation, today's sports venues are redefining what it really means to be sustainable.

MooreExpert Dirk Kestner talks sustainable stadium design in the recent issue of Stadia:

"When sustainability expert Dirk Kestner began work as an engineer nearly two decades ago, few people in the field of sports stadium projects spoke about 'embodied carbon' at the design phase.
