On May 9, 2019 Ei orchestrated sustainability tours of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium (MBS) and Georgia World Congress Center Authority for Pattie Baker, alias “Sustainable Pattie.” The tours were research for Pattie’s recently announced Sustainability-in-Action bicycle tours in partnership with Bicycle Tours of Atlanta.
At the MBS, Operations Manager – Tours Dawn Brown hosted the impressive tour with General Manager Scott Jenkins joining the first half. After an education of the state-of-the-art design and construction that earned MBS LEED Platinum Certification, the tour focused on the waste-reduction practices in-place within back-of-the-house operations. The tour ended at the recently planted raised-bed gardens along the Northside Drive administration entrance.
The RiA Magazine article, Sustainability in ACTION garners a new life, at the speed of bike, gives an overview of the MBS tour. An Ei Connects FB album section includes a pictorial recap of the Sustainability in Action Bicycle Tours.
