MetLife Stadium lies in the heart of the New York Metropolitan Area, . Home to both the New York Giants and the New York Jets, the stadium sits next to the former area where the Giant Stadium was. This was home to the NY Giants from 1976 to 2009, as well as the Jets from 1984 to 2010. This particular stadium is the lone stadium that is currently shared by two teams. The stadium is currently managed by the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. The two teams that share it built it using private funds in a joint operation. The stadium is operated through a company designated as a 50/50 venture.
In June 2009, prior to the opening of the MetLife Stadium, the New Meadowlands Stadium Corporation and the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) both signed a memo that outlined preparations to integrate ecologically aware substances and applications into the erection and function of the stadium. The agreement included efforts to decrease air contamination, preserve energy and water, advance waste supervision, and diminish the ecological impact of production.
The aim of the contract was to preserve the emission of carbon dioxide gas during the construction of the stadium. Per the terms of the agreement, the stadium erection used around 40,000 loads of used steel, had to salvage 20,000 stacks of the metal, steel from the Giants Stadium, put in seats created from used plastic and fragmented iron, and diminish greenhouse gasses from assembly automobiles by using diesel fuel that was approved, engine filters, and cutting down on the idle times in engines. Other goals of this accord included providing mass transit choices for devotees and replacing conventional refreshment stand plates, and biodegradable cups and substitutes. The New Meadowlands Stadium Corporation was slated to note the advancement on its objectives to Environmental Protection Agency on a six month basis. As a result of the data, EPA will enumerate the advantages of the venue’s ecological endeavors.
