As we mentioned earlier, Super Bowl XLVI is stepping up its greening efforts – with everything from composting to charging stations to green energy offsets.

Green Mountain Energy, the Texas-based electric and carbon offsets provider, has partnered with the NFL in providing over 15,000 megawatt hours of renewable energy certificates (RECs) to offset greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity from the big game. They’re also helping to offset this year’s NFL Pro Bowl.

“Green Mountain Energy Company has helped us reduce the overall environmental impact of Super Bowl activities,” said NFL Environmental Program Director Jack Groh. “Together, we have been able to expand the way we address greenhouse gas emissions and leave a permanent benefit to the host community.”

That permanent benefit includes 1,700 trees to be planted throughout downtown Indianapolis after the big game. Check out the infographic below – or for more details, hit up Green Mountain Energy’s Super Bowl page here.
