College Sports Follow the Lead of NHL Green

Alice Henly is a Resource Specialist & College Sports Greening Coordinator at the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The NHL has one of the strongest environmental programs of any sports organization worldwide, and its uniquely powerful cultural influence provides much-needed business leadership in ecologically sustainable practices.

The NHL’s commitment to environmental stewardship offers a strong model not only for professional sports greening efforts, but also the growing collegiate sports greening movement as well. More and more college sports are adopting greener practices and educating millions of college sports fans about the importance of protecting the natural ecosystems we enjoy and rely on.

In particular, collegiate hockey rinks across the country are following the NHL’s lead and becoming champions of the sports greening movement. In doing so, they are helping to reduce emissions of global warming pollution, protect habitat, save energy and water, reach millions of fans with environmental messages, and train future business leaders in environmental stewardship.

Read on and find out more about how those in the hockey community are stepping up their green game.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
