The Science Inside Climate Pledge Arena

What will it be like to attend a sporting event or a concert inside Climate Pledge Arena? Amazon, Oak View Group, and Seattle Kraken are partnering to make Climate Pledge Arena the first zero-carbon certified arena in the world. Some of the features you can expect include 100% renewable electricity, the greenest ice in the NHL using rainwater, 75% of food sourced locally from farmers and producers, solar panels along the roof of the Alaska Atrium, and on-site stormwater retention for landscaping. How exactly will all of this be achieved, and how will fans experience it?

Join us as our expert panelists dive into the science and sustainability of Climate Pledge Arena. Speakers include representatives from McLennan Design, Seattle Kraken, Climate Pledge Arena, and Amazon.
