NHL renews pledge to EPA's Green Power Partnership

NEW YORK -- In celebration of Earth Day, NHL Green has teamed up with Sterling Planet, the United States' leading retail provider of environmental assets for corporate, utility and government clients, to attempt to mitigate the environmental impact of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

For the second consecutive year, using environmental assets from Sterling Planet, the NHL will counterbalance the estimated carbon emissions resulting from arena electricity consumption during all 2013 Playoffs games and team air travel throughout the Playoffs, based on conservative projections of the expected carbon footprint associated with the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Accordingly, Sterling Planet will provide the NHL with 12,850 megawatt-hours (MWh) in the form of Green-e® Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from U.S. wind projects and 1,148 metric tons of verified emission reductions -- also known as carbon offsets -- from projects authenticated by the Verified Carbon Standard or the Climate Action Reserve, independent accounting programs which validate, measure, monitor and ensure the environmental benefit of the carbon offset projects.

NHL.com

WASHINGTON -- The National Hockey League participated in a Sports and Sustainability conference at the White House Thursday morning in which top government officials and influential sports executives came together to discuss the current state of greening in professional sports and the industry's growing embrace of energy efficiency, water conservation, smarter recycling, healthier food and the role sport can play in spreading the environmental message.

The forum was tied to the Administration's Better Buildings Initiative.

Former New York Rangers goaltender and Stanley Cup champion Mike Richter, now a principal at Healthy Planet Partners, was among the panelists.

"There is a perfect intersection between the environment and human health," Richter said "It should not be considered a rare thing for sports to be talked about in the same breath as the environment."

A number of the incoming trees will replace those that have been lost due to insects, disease, storms, drought, and age related decline.
