Mayor Emanuel, NFL Commissioner Goodell Commemorate Soldier Field’s LEED Status
Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell, USGBC-Illinois and Chicago Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips in unveiling a plaque to commemorate the fact that Soldier Field is the first NFL stadium to achieve LEED status.
"Chicago is the green buildings capital of the world, so it is natural that our football stadium is the first LEED certified professional football stadium," said Mayor Emanuel. "In Chicago, the public and private sector are committed to promoting sustainability and seeking the positive economic returns and job creation associated with these efforts. Soldier Field is another fine example of this mentality."
