San Francisco 49ers and Cadence Design Systems tackle sustainability
The San Francisco 49ers NFL team has teamed up with Cadence Design Systems to focus on sustainability, technology and community initiatives.
Computer software company Cadence will act as the side’s official technology partner, and will collaborate with the 49ers on future projects at Levi’s Stadium to incorporate sustainability into the venue’s operations.
Cadence will aid the 49ers in identifying stadium energy efficiencies and will provide technology expertise based on its Future Facilities platform, which supports the Cadence Intelligent System Design strategy.
The company will also support the 49ers Foundation’s 49ers EDU programme presented by Chevron, which leverages American football and Levi’s Stadium as platforms to promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) education concepts to young people.
"The 49ers and Cadence are very well-aligned in that we're both making it a priority to do what's best for the planet and make a positive impact on the community."
Kevin Hilton, 49ers Vice-President of Corporate Partnerships, said: “As a fellow Bay Area brand that is committed to sustainability and STEAM education, Cadence is a perfect fit and great addition to our corporate partnership team.
“As we approach 10 years at Levi’s Stadium, we look forward to collaborating with a like-minded, innovative partner for years to come and welcome Cadence to the 49ers family.”
KT Moore, Cadence Vice-President of Corporate Marketing, added: “The 49ers and Cadence are very well-aligned in that we’re both making it a priority to do what’s best for the planet and make a positive impact on the community.
“By collaborating with the 49ers to establish an energy efficiency strategy utilising Future Facilities, we’re on a path to enabling the football franchise to leverage our game-changing technology and expertise to improve its carbon footprint in the immediate geography and surrounding communities.”
