Fiserv Forum named one of most eco-friendly arenas
June 3, 2019
In June 2018, Fiserv Forum and the Milwaukee Bucks, in conjunction with Levy, announced their sustainability initiatives including their intent to not offer straws at events and utilize compostable food packaging as part of its sustainability program. To date, Fiserv Forum has eliminated 370,000 straws and 50 tons of food waste that would have otherwise gone to landfills. The stadium installed an ORCA Digester to reduce landfill waste; landscaped with native plants; and built the arena with recycled content, regionally sourced building materials, and low emission products. In 2019, the Fiserv Forum achieved LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
