Busch Stadium Partnership With Energy Star Leads to Green Programs in This Month's Business Review USA

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - Joe Abernathy, Vice President of Stadium Operations at Busch Stadium, reveals what it takes to run an efficient program in baseball.

The St. Louis Cardinals' Busch Stadium is one of only a handful of Major League Baseball teams to implement a green efficiency program. Joe Abernathy, a 15-year veteran at Busch Stadium, has successfully turned stadium operations into the green program, 2008's "4 A Greener Game," due in part to one relationship. 

Running an efficient program was always part of the stadium's regime, but their partnership with Energy Star accelerated this position. As the first sports facility to partner with the free federal program, without it Busch Stadium would not have been able to reduce their energy consumption by 12 percent. 

"One of the things in particular that Energy Star does is their Portfolio Manager, which is a tool in which business operators can keep track or measure their energy use," says Abernathy. "They do that in such a way that takes into account the weather, so it gives you a statistic at the end of the process that can help you gage how efficient you're using your energy." Read what other characteristic separates Busch Stadium from other MLB facilities, in the latest issue of Business Review USA.
