About the Stadium
The Welsh Rugby Union (a not-for-profit organisation) owns the stadium and has embraced the three pillars of sustainable development – social, economic and environmental because it makes economic sense but also it is the right thing to do. The stadium now recycles around 98% of its waste and all food waste is composted saving 78 tonnes of waste from going to landfill and saving £21,000 per year. The stadium was the first venue to achieve the British Standard for Sustainable Development and ISO 20121 Sustainable Event Management. Currently all their energy comes from renewable sources however they are currently investigating the possibility of installing solar PV panels on their roof. To achieve this, the Stadium is working closely with the Low Carbon Built Environment research team at the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University, to source the technology and manage the logistics of ensuring that the building becomes entirely self-sufficient in terms of energy. This would make the Principality Stadium, the first stadium in the world to do this. The Welsh Rugby Union is also keen to focus on developing their community engagement to socially benefit Wales.
