Green Sports Alliance Recap

As you know, last week we released the Greener Cleaning in Sport Facilities Playbook at the Green Sports Alliance’s (GSA) annual Summit.  Both the launch and the Summit were big successes — and it was great seeing so many of you there.  My favorite parts (aside from launching the Playbook) were:

  • Commissioner Gary Bettman’s speech and the NHL Sustainability Symposium
  • Hanging out with Andrew Ference captain of the NHL Edmonton Oilers and Will Witherspoon former linebacker with the NFL St. Louis Rams
  • The launch of GSA’s new Corporate Leadership Council
  • Holding our 1st International Affiliates meeting with participants from the UK, Europe, Australia and South America so we can work around the globe
  • Adding Brandon Igdalsky, CEO and owner of the Pocono Raceway to GSA’s Board of Directors

The Summit was truly fun and inspiring!  I truly believe that sports can help us create better places to play, live, work and learn.

Thanks again for your support and contributions to the Playbook.  You can download a copy by clicking here.  Let us know if you have any additional thoughts or comments about the Playbook.  And perhaps more important, what you need to implement a Greener Cleaning program.

Best regards and please be in touch,
