MetLife Stadium Sets Industry Precedent for Green Initiatives   

Stadium Recognized by Environmental Protection Agency as Leading Venue in
Carbon, Energy, Water and Solid Waste Reduction 
 

On June 1, 2009, MetLife Stadium, home of the NFL’s New York Football Giants and New York Jets, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pledging to become an environmental steward by implementing a number of green initiatives that would reduce its carbon footprint and further improve our planet’s environment. 

Since our initiation, we have been recognized by a variety of organizations and publications for our efforts in sustainability.
