Operating an international stadium in such a unique urban location presents a number of environmental challenges. Aviva Stadium has been designed and built to manage a lot of these challenges through design solutions in partnership with a sustainable operational approach. The stadium is located a short walking distance from Dublin City Centre. It is bounded to the east by the Dodder River, to the west by a railway line for one of Irelands busiest sections of track and to the north and south by neighbouring residential and commercial properties. Operating a stadium to meet the needs of fans, teams and support services also
- requires a lot of energy and water
- generates a lot of waste
- requires a lot of food & beverage
- involves fans, goods and staff transport management
- can generate noise / additional light in the area can affect biodiversity in the area
