They are all leaders in the professional sports' greening movement who will be honored at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Game Changer Awards Gala on March 14, 2013, at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City, hosted by WNBA legend and four-time Olympic Gold medal winner Lisa Leslie.

NRDC is a proud founder of the U.S. professional sports greening movement. Since 2004, they've been the principal environmental advisor to all the professional sports leagues. As a result of these collaborations, more than 100 professional teams have adopted environmental initiatives, millions of pounds of global warming pollution have been avoided, millions of gallons of water have been conserved, and teams have been able to save millions of dollars in the process.
