The US Green Building Council (USGBC), the group that manages LEED certification of all manner of buildings, has teamed up the Green Sports Alliance (GSA) to promote green building initiatives in pro and college sports. Environmental Leader broke this news this morning.
USGBC says it will support the GSA to accelerate the green sports movement by promoting increased LEED certification of sports stadiums, ballparks and arenas across the country.
GSA is hosting their annual Summit next week in Brooklyn and the USGBC-GSA partnership will most certainly be on the agenda. GreenSportsBlog will be on hand to provide reports on this and other topics.
