AEG’s transformative developments have turned blighted urban sites that are well served by public transportation into vibrant pedestrian districts that offer a dynamic mix of concerts, sporting events, family shows, blockbuster movies, dining options and more. The projects have redefined their respective cities by creating thousands of local jobs, generating substantial economic growth and serving as the catalyst for adjacent residential, retail and commercial development.
Today, these premier locations not only are interwoven into the fabric of the city, but have become gathering places to live, work and celebrate. Reaching beyond neighborhood boundaries and cultures they bring people together, build community and embody the diversity of city life. They also play a critical role in improving the lives of people in the surrounding neighborhoods by creating opportunities for local workers, facilitating infrastructure for residents and enabling funding for community programs that aid children and youth.
More than a decade ago, AEG launched its corporate sustainability program, AEG 1EARTH, with the goal of minimizing its environmental footprint to make a difference. The company sets aggressive targets to reduce carbon emissions, improve water-use efficiency and reduce waste generation throughout its global operations. It also continues to invest in energy efficient upgrades and renewable energy, support innovative technologies to lower water demand and pilot new waste initiatives to reduce single-use plastics across its operations.
AEG understands the intrinsic link between its business and employing environmentally conscious practices. With the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as its guide, the company is committed to continuing to use the power of sports and live entertainment to transformative urban landscapes and better the communities where it does business.
