Southface’s 25th Visionary Dinner brought together Atlanta’s sustainability community as we honored Dawn Brown and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Green Team with the Argon Award of Excellence.
Serving as Southface’s keystone fundraising event, Visionary Dinner invites sustainability leaders, innovators, and our community of dedicated advocates to join us for an evening of celebration and purpose. Total funds raised during the event will save a projected 1,752 metric tons of CO2e emissions from the atmosphere over the next 15 years by advancing Southface’s mission. That’s 32,195 pounds in projected carbon savings per attendee – the equivalent of what 241 tree seedlings can naturally remove in 10 years!
We hope you enjoy exploring the event and save the date for October 24, 2024, to join us in impact at next year’s event. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities available in early 2024.
During the event, we will be presenting Southface’s Argon Award of Excellence to Dawn Brown and the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Green Team. From educating guests about the importance of recycling to teaching students what it means to be sustainable, the Mercedes-Benz Green Team has become a global inspiration for creating a world where sustainable and inclusive communities thrive.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been dedicated to being a Zero Waste Stadium since opening day in 2017. In June of 2022, MBS achieved TRUE precertification signifying the successful implementation of foundational programs and policies to divert at least 90 percent of waste from landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment, operations needed to effectively pursue zero waste. And in 2023, became the first professional sports stadium worldwide to achieve TRUE Platinum certification for Zero Waste.
