Mayor Gallego welcomes a sustainable future for Phoenix
"Just last night, the Phoenix City Council and I approved an updated, comprehensive Climate Action Plan that accelerates our goal to reach net-zero before 2050,' said mayor Gallego. "I'm proud to have partners like the Suns and Footprint who are fully engaged in creating a healthy, sustainable future for Phoenix."
"Together we’ll create a living innovation lab of new ideas for consumer feedback, new opportunities for our customers, and we can educate fans in a way that will create a ripple effect outside the arena.”
Sustainable technology at work
Consumers, corporations and legislative changes are signaling the end of single-use plastic.
Our immersive, Living Innovation Lab at Footprint Center will engage fans, partners, food and beverage companies, scientists and sustainability experts —for research, advice, key learnings from fans, education, testing and more as we continue on the journey to eliminate single-use plastics in our food chain.
Footprint’s solutions might look simple, but our material science technology is high tech – our co-founders come from Intel along with 100+ scientists and PhDs – working every day to engineer food-safe solutions. Mallorca, Mercury and Suns fans can enjoy their entertainment without worrying about the impact on their health or the planet.
A whopping amount of plastic is never recycled at all. Regulations pressuring change – 8 states in the US have banned polystyrene foam food packaging already and 100+ cities, Europe has banned single-use plastics and plastic-lined cups as of July 1. Footprint Center will help showcase how others can make impact at scale, with the right partners.
