The Houston Texans have partnered with SMG and Reliant Energy to save energy throughout NRG Stadium. Motion-sensor light switches have been installed in all Texans offices. The sensor automatically shuts lights off after 20 minutes if they do not detect any motion.
The Texans, in partnership with Waste Management, Aramark, and Waste Management Recycle America, support a recycling program for all Texans home games at NRG Stadium. The effort is year-round, with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and any other events held in the stadium also participating. Recycling bins can be found throughout NRG Stadium and NRG Park.
Interactive Media Guide
The Houston Texans created the NFL’s 1st interactive media guide, allowing the Texans to save the estimated 2,600,000 pages used in printing. The Texans will continue to be on the cutting edge of development and innovation.
The team has reduced the amount of oil consumed and CO2 emitted by utilizing Segways and electric golf carts more frequently over gas-powered vehicles. This switch has helped reduce the carbon footprint of the Texans organization.
Touchdown for Trees presented by Imagenet
For each offensive touchdown scored by the Houston Texans at a home game, ImageNet funds a tree to be planted in the Greater Houston Area. Thanks to the total number of touchdowns in the 2014 season, ImageNet donated $5,000 for trees. The trees were planted at Hartsfield Elementary by volunteers from the Texans and ImageNet on Earth Day with support from Trees for Houston, a nonprofit organization dedicated to planting, protecting, and promoting trees.
