UBS Arena Sets Sustainability Agenda 

New York's UBS Arena announced its new formal sustainability agenda that serves to advance a commitment to environmental impact, lowering emissions and adding renewable energy.

The venue, which recently reached its second anniversary, plans to maintain carbon neutrality of Scope 1 and 2 emissions while measuring and reducing Scope 3 emissions by 25% under a 2022 baseline by 2030. UBS Arena also plans to install 6MW (DC) of on-site renewable energy by the end of 2024 and achieve zero waste by the end of 2023.

"Our organization's commitments are deeply rooted in making a difference," said Kim Stone, President UBS Arena, in a statement. "This bold sustainability framework gives us an even greater opportunity to make further strides in those promises. It's important that we don't just talk about these values, but how we are committed to actions."

UBS Arena also plans to host 15 impact-focused events by 2025. The first event will be a sustainability forum in 2024 hosted in collaboration with Oak View Group.

The event includes experts and officials from the Governor's office, New York State Government, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, environmental conservation and sustainability groups, along with representatives from Oak View Group and UBS Arena. The panel topics will include transportation, renewable energy, zero waste, and local biodiversity.
