By saving millions of gallons of water, using efficient field lighting, adding a green roof and incorporating recycling at the ballpark, Nationals Park is a lot greener than just its playing field.

"Creating a green ballpark was as fundamental as any requirement when we decided to embark on this mission to build a new state of the art stadium for the Washington Nationals," said DC Sports and Entertainment Commission CEO Gregory A. O'Dell. "We are excited to set the environmental standard for the rest of the sporting world and we are extremely proud of this achievement for the District of Columbia."

Using high efficiency field lighting, which will save 21 percent over typical field lighting.

Installing water conserving plumbing fixtures, which will save 3.6 million gallons of water per year and reduce overall water consumption by 30 percent.

Using air-cooled chillers instead of water-cooled chillers will save another 6 million gallons of water per year.

Placing 100 recycling bins for fan use throughout the ballpark.

Using recycled materials in 20 percent of the ballpark's construction, and recycling 5,500 tons of construction waste.

Planting a 6,300 square foot green roof above a concession/toilet area beyond left field to collect rain water and minimize roof heat gain.
