The New South Wales Ministry of Health, branded NSW Health, is a ministerial department of the New South Wales Government. NSW Health supports the executive and statutory roles of the Minister for Health, the Minister for Medical Research, and the Minister for Mental Health.

As Bankwest Stadium opens its doors again for NRL action this weekend, the world class venue is celebrating its status as a world leader in sustainable design.

Bankwest is the first stadium in the world to announce it has achieved LEED v4 Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council.

Acting Minister for Sport Geoff Lee said the gold certification recognised Bankwest’s high performance in innovation, water savings, energy efficiency, transportation options and materials selection during construction.

“Bankwest Stadium has been a game-changer for sports fans and players but this world leading achievement in sustainability shows it is much more than just a great place to watch footy,” Mr Lee said.

“This stadium was not only designed and built with the spectator in mind, but also the local environment, the local community and the industrial heritage of Parramatta and Greater Western Sydney.”

Lendlease Building General Manager NSW, Sandra Perosh, said the certification was a testament to Lendlease’s commitment to creating the best places while ensuring optimal environmental outcomes.

“We have helped deliver a world class stadium in every sense – merging unrivalled design, construction and operation to create the ultimate fan experience,” said Ms Perosh.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is a rating system that covers buildings, homes and communities that are designed, built, maintained and operated to a high environmental performance.
