Agencies Partner to Improve Environmental Aspects of Sporting Industry

Green Sports Alliance and EPA are working together to address environmental issues concerning sports teams and venues. Both organizations sealed their agreement with a Memorandum of Understanding at the Second Annual Green Sports Alliance Summit, held in Seattle, WA.

The agencies will tackle problems such as water and energy conservation, waste management, and sustainability for teams, stadiums and venues. Green Sports Alliance's Martin Tull says that for success in this endeavor, teams and venues must begin to measure their environmental impact. "This deeper partnership with EPA will help provide our members with the tools and resources they need to establish baselines and support their continuous improvement in terms of performance and efficiency," Tull says.
