NHL promotes sustainability achievements

The National Hockey League (NHL) reported a 1-percent reduction of energy consumption and a 2-percent reduction in CO2 emissions as part of its first NHL Green month, celebrating their ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability.

According to a report from the NHL, the reduction in energy consumption occurred from fiscal years 2014 through 2016 and was driven by using more efficient lighting, enhanced building management systems, waste heat recapture technologies, and onsite renewable energy generation.

The CO2 decline, posted during the same timeframe, came through "innovations and efficiencies." Other sustainability achievements included a 7-percent decrease in water consumption and a 32% waste diversion rate, on the way to a goal of 50% within the next five years.

Results from the NHL’s Greener Rinks Initiative are highlighted in the League’s 2018 Sustainability Report, which details efforts "innovate at NHL arenas, transform the hockey community through environmental collaboration, inspire communities to act, and encourage fans to get involved."
