NHL provides environmental role models!

NHL provides environmental role models!

Many of us grew up playing hockey on the streets and still remember the calls of "CAR". We would then move our hockey nets, watch the cars go by and then resume playing. When I was one of those kid’s we were imagining we were Lafluer, Esposito or Dryden. These days the game is the same but the players the kids are emulating are Crosby, Ovechkin and Iginla.

We didn’t think of the bigger picture back then as we sucked in the exhaust fumes from that 1975 Chevy as it slowly drove by and I am sure that it is the same for the players today when that Prius drives by. The one difference is the affect on the global warming of the planet. I understand that little Bobby "Crosby" Jones doesn’t spend too much time worrying about global warming; he is just trying to get that backhand to look just like Sidney Crosby’s. Hockey players have always been someone to look up to and have been role models for generations of kids, now there is just one more reason for this to be.

Each player in the National Hockey League generates about 10 tonnes of carbon emissions each season with the bulk of it coming from air travel but also from driving between arenas and airports. Andrew Ference spearheaded an initiative where players purchase carbon offsets to cover their air travel and hotels while they are on the road with the NHL. The initiative which is not run by the NHL or individual teams is entirely voluntarily. Today, roughly half of the players are participating in the initiative. The money that is paid to the carbon offsets is distributed to clean air projects in India, Indonesia and Madagascar.

UFC Heavyweight fight: Shane Carwin vs. Neil Wain

Shane Carwin (9-0-0) knows that holding down two jobs can be rough. He's a full time engineer, and a full time mixed martial artist. He's a quick thinker and a force of nature. And if he weren't on the same card as Silva-Jardine at UFC 84, he probably would have earned himself a Knockout of the Night on his UFC debut!

Still, Carwin is one of the new-breed MMA fighters: A multi-talented athlete in addition to being a gym rat.

For the first couple of years of his MMA career, Shane wasn't really challenged. He fought in the lower leagues and never had a fight go past 2 minutes and 11 seconds. His team claims that he has good cardio, however the guy has never needed it. He's coached by veteran Nate Marquardt, and rolls with the folks over at High Altitude MMA in Colorado. That's a good crew, with very modern attitudes and methods. So even though he hasn't been tested to his full potential, his pedigree is high.

The Wal-Mart Effect, Corporate Social Responsibility

Offshoring - The Wal-Mart effect - Corporate Social Responsibility - These are some of the drivers behind the trend line towards more green and sustainable purchasing.

More and more organizations are adopting sustainability or Corporate Responsibility (CR) commitments - public declarations that the firm is integrating environmental, ethical, and social factors throughout their business strategies, operations, products and services, and in how they relate to their employees, communities, and suppliers.


China, Revolution in the Air

For the last five years the country’s leaders have stopped talking about economic growth without concern for the environment. They have been keenly aware of the dangers of greenhouse gas emissions and have instituted policies to curb development excesses of the past. In fact China plans to reduce its energy intensity by 20 percent by 2010 and to almost double renewable energy to 15 percent of total generation by 2020, according to the Climate Group, a non-profit dedicated to advance business and government leadership on climate change.

"Significant actions to improve energy efficiency are already under way. China is now showing some of the strongest growth rates in the low carbon industries that reduce climate impacts of any country in the world," write Steve Howard and Changhua Wu of Climate Change in the environmental report, China’s Clean Revolution. China now ranks second in absolute dollar amounts invested in renewable energy - $12 billion in 2007 - second only to world leader Germany.
