Sustainability and the concept of going green are becoming a topic brought up not only in a business aspect but also in professional sports. Professional sports throughout the world is turning into not only a form of entertainment, but also a platform to demonstrate and set the bar for upper echelon sustainability initiatives. The main focus of this presentation will give insight to how professional sports organizations, such as the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, and the Minnesota Twins, have taken large strides to improve their carbon footprint and raise the bar for what should be the standard for sustainability in professional sports. There are many other organizations in the lower ranks, such as college organizations that are taking strides to better themselves as well. With the support of organizations such as LEED and Green Project Management, taking action to become sustainable should be considered the norm.
