Croke Park - a world leader in sustainable events
Proud of its long-established sustainability credentials, Croke Park was the first stadium in Ireland and Britain to secure both ISO14001 and ISO 20121 standards.
In another first, Croke Park was the very first stadium in the world to obtain certification to the newest international Environmental Standard ISO 14001:2015.
Here are just some of the innovative reasons Croke Park continues to be a global leader when it comes to aspiring to, and reaching, the highest international standards for sustainability.
Move over Dublin – Croke Park has its very own impressive six in a row!
When it comes to diverting all our waste away from landfill. We’ve done that now since 2014.
Never mind Sam and Liam, our sustainability team get more excited about are our compostable coffee and tea cups!
Alongside all our other compostable cutlery & our 30 water bottle refill points in the stadium, we continue to step up to the challenge of reducing single-use plastic items in Croke Park.
We’ve more than one hawk-eye in Croke Park!
We use harrier hawks to keep birds from landing in the stadium during our events. The hawks stop seagulls and other birds taking rubbish out of the ground and dropping in our local area, causing a litter problem.
Croke Park has its very own neighbourhood watch!
We believe our community team, which is made up entirely of our local neighbours is the only team of its kind. They work during every event, helping their neighbours and keeping a watchful eye over our local area.
