Sterling Planet Teams Up with Sports and Social Change to Lower Environmental Impacts of Sporting Events

Winner of the 2012 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Supplier of the Year Award, Sterling Planet is a sustainability pioneer and innovative supplier of renewable energy, energy efficiency and low-carbon solutions, and has become a key player in driving sustainability and responsible energy usage in the sports business through relationships with the NHL, NFL, Philadelphia Eagles, Kroenke Sports Enterprises (Pepsi Center/Denver Nuggets) and Beyond Sport.

Sports and Social Change is partnering with Sterling Planet to offer their carbon neutral solutions to Action Sports event organizers for all types of snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, surfing, motocross and BMX races and contests, as well as Endurance Racing events including marathons, 5K/10K races, triathlons, cycling and mountain biking events. They believe their combined efforts will help the sports industry run events, tournaments and races that have a big impact on society and very small impact on the environment.
