The Green Sports Alliance is excited to present the first Environmental Innovators of the Year Awards at the 2016 Summit in Houston.
The Environmental Innovators of the Year Awards recognize Green Sports Alliance member teams, venues, events or universities for their excellence in advancing the sports greening movement. Winners of the Innovators of the Year Award are those members that truly embody sports greening across their organization and operations, implementing projects that not only reduce environmental impact but encourage staff, fans, and players to do the same.
An Innovators of the Year Award will be given to one Green Sports Alliance member in each of the following categories: NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, NHL, Collegiate, and Other Events and Leagues. Below is the complete list of finalists.
The winner of each category will be announced at the Green Sports Celebration in Houston on Wednesday, June 29th at BBVA Compass Stadium.
