"We are witnessing a major shift in the sports business community," said Howard Brodwin, founder of Sports and Social Change. “Sports organizations are taking greater responsibility for the environmental impact of sports events, reaching out to educate their fan bases on sustainable energy and trying to reduce energy use. By working with Sterling Planet to provide clean energy solutions for event planners, we’re making real progress in the area of environmentally responsible sports management."

The companies will together offer clean energy solutions for event production and management firms, with an initial focus on Action Sports such as surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, motocross, BMX and wakeboarding, and the endurance racing space, which includes marathons, 5K/10K racing, triathlons, duathlons, road cycling, mountain biking and adventure racing events.
