Sports and sustainability leaders will drive the conversations as they explore better environmental practices and proven solutions that will continue to advance the green sports movement.

"We are excited to participate in our second sponsorship year following the 2013 Summit in Brooklyn, NY where we sponsored the round table discussion on Green Cleaning," said Rob Totten, Sustainability Director for Filta. “Sustainability is really at the core of who we are. Our local Franchise Owners quantify sustainability efforts with periodic Environmental Impact Reports. In addition to tangible environmental results, our customers see significant impact to the bottom line in reducing cost of goods, labor, and liabilities. In fact, of the 66 sports venues that are members of the Green Sports Alliance in the US, 18 are current customers seeing these benefits."
