GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Sports Alliance

Title:
Green Sports Alliance

Abstract:
The Green Sports Alliance is a non-profit organization with a mission to reduce the environmental impact of professional sports and to inspire fans to join us in these efforts. The founding members of the Alliance are from six different professional sports leagues. Over the past year, venue operators, sports marketing directors and environmental scientists have collaborated to exchange their real world experiences and create metrics that are meaningful and measurable. The information gathered from this collaboration is now available to members and partners not only to gain a better understanding of the impact sporting events have on the environment, but also to provide inspiration and a roadmap for teams and venues to make changes to reduce that impact. Since the North American launch in March 2011, more than 25 sports teams and venues from across North America have joined the Green Sports Alliance, representing nine professional sports leagues.
