EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.

The New York Jets and Giants have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Environmental Protection Agency that will make their new US$1.6 billion football stadium, set to open in 2010, in the New Jersey Meadowlands one of the greenest in professional sports.

Recycled steel, concrete and aluminum are being used in the building. The 82,500 seats are being made from recycled iron and plastic. One goal is to reduce average annual water demand by 25 per cent compared with the current Giants Stadium.

Waterless urinals will save 2.7 million gallons of water.

Energy-efficient products are expected to reduce energy consumption 30 per cent. New mass transit links are expected to eliminate nine million kilometres of car travel per year.
