Red Goes Green

Initiatives

The Phillies' efforts for a cleaner environment are in collaboration with Citizens Bank Park operators Global Spectrum, a Comcast-Spectacor subsidiary, and ARAMARK, the Phillies food and beverage provider.

  • To offset the carbon footprint created by the team's utility power usage at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies have purchased more than 22 million kilowatt-hours of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), matching 100% of electricity usage with wind and solar generation. A significant portion of generation comes from local Pennsylvania-based sources.
  • Food and organics composting take place in all kitchen and employee dining areas at Citizens Bank Park.
  • T-shirts worn by the cleaning crew are made from recycled plastic bottles.
