Sustainability is an issue increasingly present in the premises, especially sports, due to their impact on both people and territories where they are.
The present system of sustainability assessment stadiums was based on a PhD work. In this PhD work has been taken into consideration what are the requirements of both FIFA and UEFA, as the existing sustainability certification systems, with more general frameworks.
It is thus intended with this tool to provide a gauging way, in the point of view of the sustainability, how the stadium is, being verified all the positive and less positive points.
How is divided the sustainability in the assessment?
Generically the assessment is divided in 6 sections: Use of Environmental Resources Impact, Spaces Comfort, Mobility, Amenities/Social Link and Quality Management of Services. These sections are divided into several criteria for which there are several questions to be answered in order to verify the sustainability.
The questions have only five possibilities of reply, since Not Applicable to Under Review, being possible and sometimes necessary to send additional information in PDF format or link’s indication to access the information.
What stadiums can assess their sustainability?
At the outset, this assessment is to be carried out by stadiums that are in operation. The system was developed having as basis the specificities of the football stadiums, however it is considered that the same can be applied to stadiums where are practiced other modalities. It is FREE OF CHARGE.
What is the output for the assessment of the sustainability?
Subsequently, it will be sent an assessment report (within 15 days maximum) as well as the position of the stadium comparatively to others previously assessed.
In this report, the results will be presented by section and globally. The results are based on a scale ranging from performance E to A + . An E is applied when nothing is done in that section and an A+ is applied when it is done more than the rating system sets.
This tool can enable:
- to gauge the level of sustainability of the stadium;
- to perform an annual assessment to attest the evolution;
- to be able to compare the sustainability in the stadiums.
If there is some specificity you consider that would be relevant, you can also send that information.
What are the steps for the sustainability of the stadium?
It is also considered that the stadiums should implement the following:
PES – Strategical Program of Sustainability (from 5 to 10 years to be implemented)
3AS – Annual monitoring and assessment of the Sustainability performance of the Stadium
RAS – Sustainability Annual Report
P2AS – Annual Action Planning for Sustainability
I am available to collaborate in the elaboration of any of the defined documents, existing in the case of PES Sharing of Risk. Questions: email@example.com.
