The Ilitch organization, in conjunction with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), announced today that the award-winning Little Caesars Arena in The District Detroit has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.

LEED, the most widely used green building rating system in the world, provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings, and is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement.

 

“Little Caesars Arena was built with an end-user approach through every decision that was made, including a primary focus on sustainability and being a caretaker of the environment,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc. “We are pleased to announce that Little Caesars Arena has earned LEED Silver certification. As one of the busiest arenas in the world, we will continue to pursue innovative ways to improve the guest experience and operate efficiently through responsible sustainability processes.”

Little Caesars Arena is a key anchor of The District Detroit. Along with the Chevrolet Plaza, four new restaurants, the Team Store retail outlet and new office space, Little Caesars Arena is bringing new life to a formerly under-utilized area of the city. Little Caesars Arena has brought more than 3,900 permanent jobs to the area and is home of the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Pistons and hundreds of other concerts, shows and events that bring people together and provide a wide variety of entertainment.

Little Caesars Arena has welcomed more than 4 million guests to its ticketed events since opening in September 2017. The arena is also committed to improving guest experience through environmental stewardship using LEED and achieved certification by implementing specific initiatives that include:

  • An erosion and sedimentation control plan approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been implemented.
  • Little Caesars Arena was awarded all five available points under the Development Density and Community Connectivity credit.
  • The efficient water fixtures in the multi-purpose arena have reduced the use of potable water by more than 40 percent.
  • The venue has achieved an energy cost savings of more than 17 percent.
  • More than 20 percent of the building’s materials have been manufactured using recycled materials.
  • The Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) roof reduces the need for daytime lighting while offering the benefits of natural light. Solar heat gain is also controlled.
  • Construction materials were selected to promote healthy air quality for visitors by reducing exposure to harmful emissions.
  • The Little Caesars Arena ventilation system meets the standards for indoor environmental quality.
  • Lighting controls are provided for 100 percent of building occupants and 100 percent of shared multi-occupant spaces.
  • Little Caesars Arena received an exemplary rating for alternative and public transportation access.
  • More than 13 percent of the building’s materials were locally sourced.

Little Caesars Arena has also achieved several other certifications and accolades indicating a commitment to service and community. In November 2017, just two months after opening to the public, Little Caesars Arena was awarded SAFETY Act Certification, the highest level of protection awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. In July 2018, Little Caesars Arena partnered with KultureCity to make all events hosted at the multi-purpose arena sensory inclusive. In October 2018, the National Weather Service recognized Little Caesars Arena as “StormReady” and certified to spot, report and prepare for a wide range of weather conditions.

Guardia di Finanza Accuses SKS365 for Tax Evasion

1-15 Guardia di Finanza Accuses SKS365 for Tax EvasionReading Time: 1 minute

Guardia di Finanza, the financial police in Italy, has accused SKS365, the Malta-based gambling operator, for tax evasion.

The fiscal probe conducted by the Guardia di Finanza law enforcement agency in the coastal city of Reggio Calabria concluded that SKS365 had failed to declare about 4 billion euros in taxable income between 2015 and 2016. Investigators said the company made the money by “carrying out gambling activities illegally in Italy.”

Ramphastos Investments acquired SKS365 for 158 million euros in August 2016 and November 2017. During the police sweep in 2018, the prosecutor’s office clarified that “no claims of responsibility” emerged against the company’s new owners.

SKS365 told that its current management has no links to the company’s previous activities and that it is now suing the company’s previous owners and seeking compensation.

Colonel Cesare Antuofermo, a Guardia di Finanza officer involved in the case, told that the legal entity liable for the tax offenses remains the same, even if the corporate structure — and its shareholders — have changed.

Antuofermo added that the latest allegations are “the largest ever tax evasion claim issued against an online gambling company in Italy.”

SKS365 will now have 60 days to make its case to the Italian Revenue Agency, which has taken over the tax evasion case from the Guardia di Finanza. The tax authority will then issue a notice that formally certifies the amount of taxes owed by SKS365 and the payment deadline.

In a statement, SKS365 told OCCRP it “reserves the right to take legal action aimed at protecting its interests and those of its investors. The company does not provide comments or specific information on its legal actions.”
