Several devices present in the arena emphasize its sustainable feature, such as mechanisms that favor better utilization of natural ventilation and lighting; rainwater reuse and water heating systems by using solar panels installed on the rooftop; installation of photovoltaic panels for power generation by solar energy; use of recyclable materials, such as ETFE film (used by the first time in a project in Latin America), present in the entire side closure of the arena; among others.
