About the Award

In an effort to reduce our global carbon footprint in sports, companies and organizations have adopted many sustainable practices in their day-to-day business operations and have encouraged fans and athletes alike, to support.

These entities demonstrate that sport can and should be more than wins and losses, but a commitment to the global need for climate action and more sustainable solutions. This award will measure sustainable initiatives such as limiting energy and water use, implementing recycling programs, LEED Certifications,  an organization-wide investment in sustainability, and the measurement and tracking of these efforts to showcase long-term impact and success.
