We are proud of the work we have conducted for Infineon Raceway over the past year, consisting of the program development, planning and partner recruitment that led to last week’s major announcement and media event detailed here. The Raceway has taken a powerful step toward becoming one of the most socially responsible tracks in the country by partnering with Panasonic and others to develop a sustainable energy program using solar, LED and efficiency measures to reduce grid-based power by nearly half.
It was a year ago this month that I met with Steve Page, Frank Gullum and Matt Ellis of Infineon Raceway to begin mapping out a plan for driving sustainability at the venue through a series of partnerships. We proceeded to create a unique, cutting-edge program that drew upon many of my past projects and leveraged the raceway’s innovative thinking and deep commitment to truly serving the needs of their partners. We chose to build the program from a base of energy efficiency and renewable power and proceeded to develop a partner ecosystem that will serve the Raceway, its partners, fans and the extended community for many years to come.
Learn more about this unique new program, our proud partnership with Panasonic, and the creative ways Infineon Raceway is walking the eco walk by following the links below. I’ll provide more information soon including our plans for the new Green Performance program and for the next naming partner of the track.
