Climate Pledge Arena

December 14, 2021

Climate Pledge Arena is on track to become the first net zero carbon-certified arena in the world by the International Living Future Institute. McLennan Design provided strategic sustainability and regenerative design consulting to set this facility on the path to become arguably the most sustainable sports venue ever. The arena will host the new NHL Seattle team and be completely carbon neutral for both operations and events. As the project progresses through construction and operations, McLennan Design will continue to coordinate, advise and improve the performance of the facility.
