With the NHL’s transition from a carbon-based energy source to one that uses natural gas, the league is making the transition from an industry that was primarily a green one to one with an increasing number of players opting for greener, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly ways to play.
The NHLPA and the NHL Players Association have been working to ensure players are aware of the changes to their livelihoods, with a goal of bringing them into line with the rest of the league in 2020.
The goal is to help them better understand the transition and provide them with the support they need to stay on the right path.
The transition is coming fast and it’s a transition that will take time to fully implement, but the players have a lot of work ahead of them to get there.
The NHLPA has partnered with a number of organizations across the league to help with outreach and education, as well as create new initiatives that will be implemented as the transition is fully implemented.
The league’s goal is that by 2020, every NHL player will be using an “energy-efficient” vehicle, a transition which is being driven by a number, including the team owners.
The change is also being driven on a personal level, with the league recently releasing a survey that found that 82 percent of players say they feel more confident about how they can help the environment.
“It’s about having a good energy-efficient vehicle that’s not just a car, but also a bicycle, a bike rack, and an electric bike,” said NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly.
“I think a lot more people are going to be choosing energy- efficient vehicles than they were before.”
The NHL has also partnered with the United Nations Environment Program to create a new campaign to raise awareness on the environment and encourage the adoption of sustainable products and practices.
The campaign will focus on the “Green” label on products, including ice, ice bags, and foam insulation.
The League has also developed the “EcoSport” campaign, which will target young players, with an emphasis on creating more awareness around the environmental benefits of playing sports.
“I think there’s a lot to be done,” said Daly.
The next step will be to develop and implement an energy-saving campaign in all 50 NHL teams, with more teams expected to follow suit as the year progresses.
“If we can all work together as a group, it’s going to create an opportunity for players to get involved in a way that they’ve never been involved before, and be more involved,” Daly said.
“It’s really exciting.”
The transition can also affect a player’s personal lifestyle, with many players opting to purchase environmentally friendly products, such as more natural and renewable fuels.
For players who choose not to make the transition, the transition will be even more significant, as many will have to find new jobs, and some will have limited options.
The impact of the transition on the NHLPA will be felt on a regional and national level, and the organization is working with all 30 NHL teams to ensure that every player in the league has a clear path to transitioning to a greener and more sustainable future.
“We’re very excited about the opportunities and challenges ahead of us,” said Dale Tallon, President of the NHL Player’s Association.
“We’re also very proud that our players have been very supportive of us throughout this transition process.”
