LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a global green-building rating system. Allegiant Stadium is now one of seven NFL stadiums to have achieved LEED certification. 

Allegiant Stadium was also recently recognised by the Green Sports Alliance at its annual summit, and received the 2023 Play to Zero Award for its waste diversion programme. 

“Allegiant Stadium is thrilled to reach the tremendous achievement of LEED Gold Certification for our sustainability efforts,” said Samantha Johnson, Senior Vice-President of Sales and leader of sustainability efforts at the venue. “As sports and entertainment industry leaders, our comprehensive sustainability initiatives have set the bar and greatly benefited the Las Vegas community and our clients.”

The LEED Gold Certification is a testament to our commitment to creating a healthy and environmentally conscious space at Allegiant Stadium for Raider Nation, our players, fans and the community we call home.”

Allegiant Stadium excelled in areas such as materials and resources, sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, indoor environmental quality and transportation.

“Achieving LEED certification is more than just implementing sustainable practices. It represents a commitment to making the world a better place and influencing others to do better,” said Peter Templeton, President and Chief Executive, USGBC. “Given the extraordinary importance of climate protection and the central role buildings play in that effort, Allegiant Stadium and the Las Vegas Raiders are creating a path forward through their LEED certification.”
