Steady-state economics and stadiums: Using the Date of Ecological Maturity to conceptualize and govern sport facility construction

Christopher McLeod, John T. Holden

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The authors use steady-state economics to elucidate the circumstances in which a newly constructed sport facility improves or impairs environmental sustainability. In particular, they develop the Date of Ecological Maturity (DEM), defined as the point in time where a new sport facility will contribute to the steady-state sport economy by maintaining and, thereafter, decreasing total throughputs of matter and energy. The DEM can be incorporated into federal, state, and municipal law, as well as leasing contracts, to incentivize sustainability in sport facility construction and operation, particularly for buildings receiving public financing.
