Music City Center makes it a priority to focus on environmental sustainability. We are proud to be LEED Gold certified for new construction by the U.S. Green Building Council as we continue to integrate sustainable practices throughout our facility.
In FY 2019, we collected over 3 million gallons of rainwater from our Green Roof, reducing our municipal water usage by 51%. Additionally, we recycled over 400,000 lbs. of mixed recycling. We strive to be a strong community partner and donated over 40,000 lbs. to the Nashville Rescue Mission.
