1 The Greening of Thomond Park Stadium

2 Local Impacts of Refurbishing the Stadium: Economic impact on city for a Heineken Cup match = 3.5 million prior to refurbishment, now estimated = 10 million the millionth visitor will pass through the stadium stiles In 2010 direct expenditure as a result of events = 78 million into the local economy 800 people employed on match & concert days across all aspects of stadium management

3 Getting involved in LAPN Approach made June 2009 – very positive reaction, agreed immediately to participate Our regional emphasis on entertainment & leisure facilities across the region At the outset of the project the facilities budget for the stadium = 1.4m per annum – concern about rising costs Holistic approach: energy, waste, water, green supply chain, impacts on contractors, awareness raising for stadium users

4 Water Consumption & Conservation 40% of water needs achieved through rainwater harvesting & used primarily for pitch watering. Turn Off policy Annual water costs = 10k

5 Conservation measures as part of LAPN Insulation of pipes, improvement to plumbing Trial of waterless urinals – now stadium wide Tap Restrictors Water conservation in kitchen

6 Results Water costs reduced by 8k Non event days water consumption between 1.5 & 2 cubic metres (1.4 cu³ used by catering contractor) – Aviva stadium is using 80 cu³ on non event days Planning further rain water harvesting

7 Energy Consumption & Conservation Prior to involvement with LAPN had contacted SEAI as they had identified significant energy costs/concerns Adviser in place so additional advice from LAPN but direct monitoring carried out by SEAI

8 Energy achievements Refurbishment of generators – now using 50% less diesel than in 2009 Measurement of energy usage per attendee Purchasing green energy Switch off campaign: staff issued with fleeces to stay warm! Further discussion last week with SEAI on possible grant aid for CHP

9 Energy Measurement 2010 No of Attendees Electricity (KwH) KwH per attendee Gas (KwH) KwH per attendee Overall Savings in CO²53 tonnes CO²savings per individual attendee0.146kgs

10 Solid Waste Prevention 90% of waste compacted Segregation of cardboard & glass only Despair at waste volumes

11 Approach Taken

12 Waste Audit Results

13 Where waste was generated

14 Other Key Players Master Chef: training of casual bar & catering staff. All catering sub- contractors. Noonan Cleaning Services: All cleaning: onsite supervision, teams to improve segregation.

15 Waste Results 2010 RecyclingWasteRecycling Monthly percentages MonthKg's Jan % Feb % Mar % Apr % May % Jun % Jul % Aug % Sep % Oct % Nov % Dec % Totals Kgs per Attendee0.074kg0.068Kg Average Recycling Rate: 52.30%

17 Some further results: Compactor now removed from site Two events recently held had only recycling & organic waste arisings – no landfill waste Ongoing discussion with Diageo with a view to introducing a compostable cup for all alcoholic beverages sold on site – Thomond Park has offered to undertake pilot national trial this for this. Food Donation Programme with Masterchef & local hostel Contracts for catering & waste management due for renewal in 2012 – management intend including strict environmental criteria

18 Proud to be

19 Finally As Limerick is a 2011 European City of Sport, Limerick City Council & the RWMO are delighted to continue the LAPN project with other City Stadia including Páirc na NGael
