2019 Summit Innovator of the Year Award Winner – San Francisco Giants

The Environmental Innovators of the Year awards are given to both individuals and organizations for their tremendous work in the sports greening movement.

The San Francisco Giants have a long legacy of sustainability efforts including earning USGBC’s existing building LEED Silver Certification in 2010, LEED Gold Certification in 2014 and LEED Platinum Certification in 2019. The Platinum Certification was achieved through the installation of LED field lights for a more than 55% energy reduction in lighting, installation of a new field irrigation system which reduced water usage by more than 50%, investment in renewable energy credits to offset 50% of their energy use, and installation of water efficient domestic water fixtures (including toilets and urinals).
