The National Hockey League is stepping up and taking a leadership role on environmental issues. Their “green goals” encompass everything from saving energy to composting and recycling. Rogers Arena, home to the Vancouver Canucks, is almost 90% converted to LED lights. As part of the “Green Initiative“, the NHL compiled two Sustainability Reports, with the most recent coming out earlier this year. The league announced measurable improvements in environmental metrics, including a 1% reduction in overall energy consumption, a 7% reduction in water consumption and a 32% waste diversion rate.
