Mercedes- Benz Stadium is the first professional sports venue in the United States to achieve LEED Platinum Certification.
In 2017, Mercedes-Benz Stadium totaled 88 points on the LEED scorecard to achieve Platinum certification, which is the highest score ever achieved by a sports facility. Unique features that target energy reduction, renewable energy, storm water management, and water efficiency were incorporated into stadium during the design and construction phase of the project. Mercedes-Benz Stadium earned all water-related credits on the LEED scorecard, and also earned points in the innovation category.
Today, these building features help the stadium operate efficiently on a day to day basis, minimize the environmental impact on event day, and benefit the surrounding Atlanta community.
