National Hockey League concerned about ice and climate change

NHL obviously needs ice rinks which use energy but symbolically, losing iced-over ponds is even more of a concern. That's where the game started. 

“It would be dishonest not to acknowledge that the report is coming out when the world is facing the most challenging political climate in the United States as it relates to climate-change policies,” says Hershkowitz, whose non-governmental organization has members in more than 50 countries.
So in a carefully worded release, they are measuring their climate impact in as non-political way as possible and are committing to being part of the solution.
“What I would say is when we do this work, we try to do it as apolitically as possible,” says Omar Mitchell, NHL vice president for corporate social responsibility, “because at the end of the day, as our commissioner would say, this is the right thing to do.”
