Sports industry offered new sustainability, clean energy and carbon avoidance solutions

ATLANTA, GA - Sterling Planet, the nation’s leading retail provider of renewable energy and other carbon-reduction assets, announced today a unique partnership with SportsandSocialChange.org, a cause-driven social enterprise in the sports industry. The two partners are providing clean energy and carbon avoidance solutions for sports event producers, participants and fans.

Sports are a year-round pastime for millions of Americans, whether they're playing and competing or watching and cheering. But what many may not realize is that staging all types and levels of competitions, tournaments and similar sports events in communities around the nation requires logistics, transportation and facility operation functions – and the significant consumption of energy and resources.

Sterling Planet and SportsandSocialChange.org are working together at the grassroots level ? where sports event programming happens on a year-round, national basis ? to provide verified environmental assets and help sports event organizers reduce energy-related carbon dioxide emissions from sports events. These assets include Sterling Planet's comprehensive portfolio of renewable energy certificates (RECs), carbon offsets and innovative White Tags® energy efficiency certificates.

"We are witnessing a major shift in the sports business community," said Howard Brodwin, founder of SportsandSocialChange.org. “Sports organizations are taking greater responsibility for the environmental impact of sports events, reaching out to educate their fan bases on sustainable energy and trying to reduce energy use. By working with Sterling Planet to provide clean energy solutions for event planners, we’re making real progress in the area of environmentally responsible sports management."

The companies will together offer clean energy solutions for event production and management firms, with an initial focus on extreme sports such as surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, motocross, BMX and wakeboarding, and the endurance racing space, which includes marathons, 5K/10K racing, triathlons, duathlons, road cycling, mountain biking and adventure racing events.

To learn more about how clean energy solutions and carbon offsets can shrink a sports event's carbon footprint and benefit the environment, please contact Howard Brodwin via email howard@sportsandsocialchange.org or phone (323) 841-2267.
