What an exciting Stanley Cup Series – congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks for pulling off a dramatic win in game 6! You may find it interesting, as I did, that the Blackhawks have their very own sustainability mission in the Chicago community. Earlier in the season, they partnered with Constellation Power in the promotion of energy efficiency. They did this by hosting a Go-Green game that avoided 63 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) or 143 barrels of oil by purchasing Green-e Energy Renewable Energy Credits. This sponsorship was an opportunity to educate fans about their option to choose renewable electricity providers for their homes.
The five-time Stanley Cup winners have also partnered with the Chicago Gateway Green initiative as leaders in the community for responsible development that aims to leave the environment in a better condition for future generations. The initiative educates through beautification projects that execute sustainable landscaping, remove litter, and improve air and water quality in the Chicago area. Blackhawks Charities and the Team are bringing pride to the city of Chicago on the rink and through the collaboration of its sustainable partnerships.
