Greening Professional Sports | Business Ethics | Sports Facility Mgmt | Scoop.it

EarthTalk® E - The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: How eco-friendly are professional sports leagues and their teams? Which stand out especially for their green efforts?

 

Professional sports, like many other pursuits, are getting greener every day. While pro leagues and teams have traditionally been the last to go green, it has all changed in recent years. Maybe it’s the fact that wasting less saves money. Or that going green generates good public relations. Or that it’s just the right thing to do. Whether it’s any or all-of-the-above, professional sports certainly have never been greener.

Tyler Skovron's curator insight, December 16, 2012 11:12 PM

Thankfully, golf tends to enhance the environment, not hurt it.  Yes it may change some of the surrounding areas, perhaps influencing the wildlife living close, but it does not turn beautiful scenery into a strip mall or parking lot.  Many professional sport teams have "gone green" or have been trying to "go green" in recent years.  Once again, very thankfully, golf is very green...literally.

James Mackay's curator insight, February 18, 2015 10:15 PM

Is it part of the ethical discussion to use some of the tremendous revenue generated by sports franchises to conduct green initiatives?  Does it show good corporate citizenship?
