The Alliance of European Hockey Clubs is delighted to invite all clubs and stakeholders to this tutorial with Rob Johnson of the NHL’s Seattle Kraken entitled "How to build the most sustainable arena in the world – and how to back it up."
Rob is the Senior Vice-President, Sustainability & Transportation of the club, whose arena was the first in the world to be zero-carbon certified. Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena also prides itself on having the NHL’s greenest ice.
Just over two years ago, Climate Pledge Arena opened with an ambitious goal to be the most sustainable arena in the world. During this presentation, we’ll talk about the construction of the arena including the preservation of the 22-ton historic roof and the elimination of all on-site fossil fuels.
We’ll also dive deep into the facility's operations, covering diverse topics ranging from fan transportation to zero waste strategies to carbon accounting for scope 3 emissions. You’ll come away with actionable steps you need to be a more sustainable arena operator and leave inspired about how sports venues can positively impact our global climate crisis.
This is a must-listen-to presentation to club and league executives who are planning to build a new arena or upgrade it to meet modern standards. It will take place on Thursday, 22 February at 15:00 CET.
It will be the E.H.C. Alliance's third online tutorial of 2024, following:
- "Crucial Investment – Health promotion in elite sports" with Tina Dyck, Hockey Club Davos (SUI) on 31 January
- "No more cold seats – The easiest path to a better future" with David Soberman, Rotman School of Management, Toronto (CAN) on 14 February
