Hockey means more than just excitement and exercise – it means an opportunity to build character, learn positive values, and connect families and communities. That’s why we’re committed to protecting the places we play hockey for future generations. We’re using innovative technologies to transform our business, and inspiring our communities and partners to lower emissions, conserve water, reduce waste and more. When your sport is so much more than a game, you have to play it forward.

The NHL and its Member Clubs are committed to improving hockey’s environmental impact. Hockey can trace its roots to the frozen freshwater lakes and ponds. The ability to skate and play the game outdoors is a critical component of the League’s history and culture. Major environmental challenges such as climate change and freshwater scarcity affect future opportunities to take the game outside. Since its launch in 2010, NHL Green™ has been committed to preserving the environment – including the frozen ponds that inspired and cultivated the game more than 100 years ago.
