NHL Announces Plan to Go Carbon Neutral, Audit Energy EfficiencyNewsweek, December 19, 2014
The National Hockey League wants to put a check on climate change.
Yesterday the league announced that it has purchased enough renewable energy to offset all the electricity to be used by every NHL facility in the current 2014-2015 season. And it said that it will begin a comprehensive audit of energy efficiency of all of these buildings.
This is unprecedented for any sports team or league, says Allen Hershkowitz, president of the Green Sports Alliance, a nonprofit organization that helps sports teams and leagues become more environmentally friendly.
