The Atlanta Falcons organization – through awareness campaigns and its own actions – is affecting real change in the Metro Atlanta community and beyond, planting seeds for future generations of our earth’s inhabitants.
Spearheaded by Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff and his own personal passion for the environment, the Atlanta Falcons Green Initiative has grown into a company-wide cultural movement helping to educate and empower the Falcons front office staff, coaches, players and all associates within the Blank Family of Businesses to become better stewards of our planet and its natural resources.
The Falcons commitment to the environment is anchored in three core initiatives: leveraging our high-profile brand in the city of Atlanta & state of Georgia to promote large-scale public initiatives that further green causes; partnering with the Georgia Dome to make our game day home as environmentally-friendly as possible; walking the talk as a business and as individuals, proactively reducing our environmental footprint at our organization’s facilities via policy changes and aggressive “green” programs.
The Falcons have taken the following measures as an organization to reduce waste, conserve energy and limit their use of finite resources:
