CHANGE FROM 2014: NEWCOMER

The “green” movement in sports is still disparate and all across the board, but if one person is influencing awareness and action, it’s Hershkowitz. When commissioners need an established, knowledgeable source in this field, they rely on one of the nation’s progressive pioneers in environmental responsibility. The former senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council has been the primary environmental adviser for the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and U.S. Tennis Association, and has established sustainability guidelines that are saving teams and leagues millions of dollars annually.
