Bright Beat helped build sustainability into the policies and infrastructure of MB Financial Park at Rosemont since it opened in 2012, broadening the impact of the “Green For A Reason” program launched at Allstate Arena in 2010… and the awards keep rolling in. The US EPA has just announced that MB Financial Park won the US EPA Food Recovery Challenge 2015 Narrative Award for Leadership (a national award!!) I guess they liked Bright Beat’s overview of the program and its impact. Park tenants, and others interested in food recovery programs, appreciated our work on the production of We Compost videos featuring Adobe Gila’s, Hofbrauhaus and Toby Keith’s. MB Park’s 2015 sustainability strategy helped 1,000 employees and 1.6 million visitors keep food recovery and waste diversion top of mind and properly executed, resulting in the recovery of more than 150 tons of organics. Congratulations to everyone involved!
- “I applaud the things you have done as well as what you are trying to accomplish, and feel a much more profound impact could be made in what we do if every venue had a position such as yours. Again, thanks for helping the Black Eyed Peas execute their environmental initiatives.”

“With the assistance of Stephanie Katsaros and Bright Beat, Allstate Arena has experienced significant savings in waste hauling expenses, we received a valuable energy efficiency grant, sold a green sponsorship and have been recognized in the trades and local media for our "Green for a Reason" campaign. I would recommend Bright Beat's services to any facility or event looking to improve their efficiency, save money and gain recognition in the concert community and beyond.”
