Little Caesars Arena is a staple in Detroit. Home to the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons, and hundreds of concerts and shows, the stadium has hosted more than 4 million guests to its events since opening in September 2017 and has brought more than 3,900 permanent jobs. It is also committed to improving the guest experience through LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

The arena recently announced that it received LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Some specific initiatives helped it achieve this certification including: an erosion and sedimentation control plan; efficient water fixtures; using construction materials that promote healthy air quality; and a ventilation system that meets the standards for indoor environmental quality.

More than 20% of the building’s materials have been manufactured using recycled materials, while lighting controls are provided for 100% of building occupants and 100% of shared multi-occupant spaces. The efficient water fixtures have reduced the use of potable water by more than 40% and the venue has reached an energy cost savings of more than 17%.
