June 29 - July 1: Green Sports Alliance Summit
May 28, 2015
The Green Sports Alliance Summit is an annual gathering of sports teams, leagues and venues, along with the businesses and nonprofits working to green professional and collegiate sports. Green Sports Alliance members span nearly 300 pro and collegiate sports teams and venues from 20 different leagues and 14 countries.
This year’s Summit is happening June 29-July 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago. As we have since the Green Sports Alliance began, the Forest Stewardship Council US will be participating in the Summit to engage our members and certificate holders, and to help support organizations looking to support responsible forest management.
Since every organization uses forest products – including sports teams and venues – we have found the Green Sports Alliance Summit to be a particularly leveraged and influential opportunity to build demand for FSC-certified products.
To that end, we encourage FSC-certified companies to consider attending the Summit. The event brings together more than 800 industry stakeholders to learn and share better practices and the latest innovations in greening operations, advancing the supply chain and engaging fans.
