Known for its many popular green features, Wrigley Field is a friend to the environment. The plan to improve Wrigley Field includes adding many modern fan and player amenities in an environmentally-efficient manner.

The Cubs will execute a number of green and sustainability initiatives during the 1060 Project. Some of the activities will include:

  • Reducing water usage through more efficient appliances and fixtures
  • Transporting construction debris to recycling centers
  • Using recycled materials where possible
  • Employing the use of construction materials harvested and manufactured within 500 miles of the job site where possible, to reduce transportation emissions and support the local economy
  • Installing energy-efficient hot water systems with energy management controls
  • Installing energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems for suites, the player clubhouse and other club spaces
  • Using low volatile organic compound paints, adhesives, carpets and flooring, to improve indoor air quality in the ballpark
  • Pursuing renewable energy credits in obtaining electrical services
