Oracle Park

Oracle Park, formerly AT&T Park and home of the San Francisco Giants since 2000, received LEED Platinum Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for EBOM (Existing Buildings, Operations and Maintenance) rating system is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

This LEED Platinum Certification for an existing building makes Oracle Park the first major league ballpark to receive this honor and recognizes the Giants and its partners, Able Services and Goby, for their efforts to achieve sustainability and efficiencies in the daily operations of Oracle Park.

Oracle Park and the Giants received LEED Platinum Certification for an existing building, one of the most challenging category certifications to achieve under the rating system, in the areas of sustainable sites; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; materials and resources; indoor environmental quality; innovation in design; and location and transportation.

The Giants are no strangers to the LEED Certification process having received both Silver (2010) and then Gold (2015) Certification in the past decade for their concerted efforts to conserve power and water, recycle waste and implement renewable energy sources and programs at Oracle Park.
