Description
Summary:How can the role of sports be interpreted in the field of environmental protection and how can we see the role of environmental protection in the light of sports? Similarly to other aspects of life, it is necessary to make some changes in sports in order to ensure its sustainability. Although sports mean sustainable human activities, services connected to it (e.g. use of water, energy demand, tourism, transport, etc.) are unsustainable and need remarkable steps to make the environment greener. The aim of this study is on the one hand to introduce the intersections of sports and environmental protection, on the other hand to present the sustainability provisions of NBA from among the American professional leagues and also to show the green aspirations of the American Airlines Arena and the Staples Centre, which are two environmentally conscious arenas. In the course of presenting the provisions of the NBA and the arenas I applied comparative analysis based on secondary data source, and examined reports, audits and case studies found on the internet.
