LA Kings Green

LA Kings Green is a multifaceted program supported by LA Kings players, staff, fans and partners which aims to address climate change. In alignment with AEG 1Earth, our goal is to reduce our environmental impact.

Climate change directly impacts the future of our sport, one that is often learned outside atop frozen ponds. As an organization, we will strive to improve the sustainable practices of our team and arena, empower organizations and individuals making a meaningful difference in their communities and provide actionable information so our fans can take lessons learned during their time at STAPLES Center home with them.
