The Buffs walk the talk when it comes to green sports.
Folsom Field was the nation's first zero-waste collegiate stadium. All football and basketball games, held at Folsom Field and the Coors Event Center respectively, are now zero-waste events. But zero-waste was just the first step. All new buildings on CU's campus are built to LEED standards and Athletics is no exception -- the Basketball & Volleyball Practice Facility and Champions Center Complex (including the Champions Center, Dalward, and the Indoor Practice Facility) are pending LEED Platinum certifications. Existing buildings -- Folsom Field and the Coors Event Center -- have been retrofitted to be more energy and water efficient. And all fields on campus; sport, recreation, and otherwise; are pesticide-free, providing a healthier playing field for our athletes, fans, and the environment.
