Footprint Center is home to Arizona's dynamic sports teams

Robert Sarver and Troy Swope kick off a long-term, global partnership today: Two Arizona companies coming together to champion a healthy planet, and healthy people.

“We have a unique opportunity with the Suns, Mercury and Real Mallorca to transform sports and entertainment experiences where fans can enjoy their food and drinks in sustainable packaging and learn more about how they can make changes in their daily lives to get rid of single-use plastics.

"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. Today is just the beginning.”

Troy Swope

“We’re thrilled to partner with Footprint to reduce the arena’s dependency on single and short-term use plastics by making Footprint Center a hub for sustainable products and packaging.

"It was important to us to find a partner that could truly make a positive impact in our community and on the planet, and Footprint is a global leader that is also Arizona-based and therefore shares our commitment to the Valley. Integrating Footprint’s plant-based fiber technology into our core business functions will mobilize partners and fans to drive collective and systemic change, in our arena and beyond.”

Robert Sarver

Sustainable technology at work.

Consumers, corporations and legislative changes are signaling the end of single-use plastic.

Living Innovation Lab

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.

Hands-On Solutions

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.

Global Impact

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.

A global partnership to accelerate a plastic-free future

Footprint Center will set a new standard in sustainability and demonstrate what’s possible for other arenas around the world.

“We’re grateful to be part of this important global partnership to champion healthy people and a healthy planet. Footprint’s expertise and sustainable solutions will have a positive impact on our stadium and our community.
