In today's evolving risk environment, protecting spectator sports venues is a multifaceted challenge. Organizations — high school, college and professional — are increasingly looking for more reliable ways to secure their facilities. At the same time, facility operators are being tasked with developing more sustainable approaches to business. In fact, sustainability — both environmental and financial — is a major concern for enterprises of all sizes and types. There is a clear trend toward addressing sustainability issues proactively, and as security is a key component of an organization's day-to-day operations, it must contribute to these initiatives. Security's impact on sustainability can include the suppliers facility managers choose, how they minimize material usage and how they plan disposal of technology at end-of-life.
