Since opening in 1964, the Indianapolis Zoo has grown into a world-class facility hosting a million visitors each year. The zoo empowers people and communities, both locally and globally, to advance animal conservation. In 2008, the zoo began to purchase green power to cover all of its energy usage. The purchase helps the Indianapolis Zoo to support the development renewable energy sources and reduce their reliance on fossil-fueled power.
“Green power purchasing, as well as other sustainability initiatives undertaken by the organization will help us gain the trust of the community as not only a source of information concerning wildlife and environmental issues, but also as a leader in embracing sustainable business practices.” – Paul Grayson, Deputy Director – Indianapolis Zoo
