Also per the news release:
The Eagles’ Go Green program has been internationally recognized for its commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly measures. Featuring a LEED Gold stadium certified by the U.S. Green Building Council and a GBAC STAR accreditation, the team diverts 99 percent of waste from landfills and operates on 100 percent clean energy. The use of organic, eco-friendly products will further assist the Eagles in reducing their environmental footprint.
As proud partners of the Eagles, Hoffman’s Exterminating will service Lincoln Financial Field and the team’s practice facility, the NovaCare Complex, with environmentally friendly pest control products and solutions. A company staple for many years, Hoffman’s integrated management system replaces pesticides and rodenticides with traps, exclusion methods, and cultural controls. In addition, an electronic monitoring technology, ActiveSense, has been installed at Lincoln Financial Field, allowing Hoffman’s to proactively monitor for rodent activity around-the-clock, even when not on-site. The technology from Corteva Agriscience is currently the largest installation in the country.
Founded in 1990, Hoffman’s takes great pride in giving back to the community. Their employees are heavily engaged in food drives, military care packages, fundraising, clothing drives, and providing for families that sometimes find it difficult to make ends meet. This partnership will allow Hoffman’s to continue its philanthropic efforts. Hoffman’s will make an annual $10,000 donation to the Eagles Autism Challenge, and [served] as an associate partner of the Eagles Youth Football Academy, helping the team kick off camps at the end of April.
