NHL Green month highlighted by 2018 sustainability report

'Greener Rinks' and 'RinkWatch' initiatives, youth-focused activities featured

by NHL Public Relations @PR_NHL / NHL.com

NEW YORK/TORONTO -- During its first-ever NHL Green month, celebrating an ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, the National Hockey League today published the 2018 Sustainability Report, the second installment following the first-ever report of its kind in 2014. The 2018 report, available on NHL.com/Green, assesses the League's environmental impact and its commitment to ensure all levels of hockey - on frozen ponds, community rinks, or in-arena - thrive for future generations.

Highlighted in the report is the NHL Greener Rinks Initiative (NHL.com/GreenerRinks), a League-wide program launched in 2016. With approximately 4,800 indoor ice rinks across North America at an average age of 30 years, the initiative measures and evaluates their environmental impact. Modern-day NHL arenas use more environmentally-friendly energy sources, including solar power, fuel cell technology, waste water recapture and reuse, and geothermal technologies. The NHL Greener Rinks Initiative aims to help rink operators make similar, sustainable business decisions in their aging community rinks while also reducing energy and operating costs to keep more rinks operational and increase access to the game.

by Kings Care Foundation @LAKingsCare / LAKings.com

In a nod to NHL Green Month, a March initiative in which clubs dedicate resources to raise awareness and funds for sustainable causes, the LA Kings dedicated two games to support sustainability efforts.

Before the Kings game against the Detroit Red Wings on March 15, fans were encouraged to take public transportation - an eco-friendly alternative to driving to games. By doing so, all fans in Kings' gear on the Metro had the chance to win special Kings giveaways.

Several fans opted to #GoMetro and one lucky fan won the best prize of all: Two tickets to the Kings games against the New Jersey Devils on March 17, as well as a Kings Green warm-up jersey.
