Important Environmental Considerations

There are a few ways of minimizing the environmental impact of a hockey arena. These include:


  • Building it in a carefully chosen location, well-accessible by the community which will use it, and well-connected to it through public transport
  • Building it after careful technical planning, to ensure all systems are efficient and avoid wastefulness
  • Hiring professional and well-trained staff to run and maintain the arena and all its systems, with a focus on energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly operation.
