Arena owners, operators and friends, On behalf of the National Hockey League (NHL), please take a moment to read the note below and complete theLeague’s online survey. Thank you from all of us at Athletica Sport Systems,
The NHL is committed to defending the natural environment. Hockey was born outdoors on frozen ponds. Cold climates and fresh water are essential to preserving the roots of our game.
Today, hockey is played predominantly indoors, in ice rinks that serve as the social and cultural hubs of their communities. Since 2010, the NHL has taken steps to measure and reduce the impact the sport has on the planet, starting with NHL arenas. We measured our footprint, implemented environmentally sustainable technologies and strategies, issued the first sustainability report in professional sports and counterbalanced our emissions with carbon offsets and green energy.
Now through the NHL Greener Rinks Initiative™, the League is on a mission to measure and evaluate the environmental impact of the greater hockey community. The initiative was announced in the United States by the White House on October 6, as part of the inaugural Green Sports Day (U.S.), in a letter signed by President Barack Obama and featured in a White House fact sheet.
To begin, we are calling on rink owners and operators for an assist: by completing this survey, you will be joining the NHL in its mission to promote more environmentally sustainable business practices.
The questions asked below require intimate knowledge of the arena; we are asking owners or those in managerial or engineering roles to complete this survey. As a thank-you, upon submission you will receive one 40% discount on one order from shop.nhl.com.
Thanks for your help and best of luck in the 2016-17 hockey season.
