Join Omar Mitchell, MBA '12, to learn more about what it's like to create your own role in sustainability at a $3B organization. Omar was able to turn a summer internship at the National Hockey League into a full-time role after graduation and is the go-to guy for promoting practices that improve the performance of NHL arenas throughout the league.

Omar Mitchell is Vice President, Corporate Social Responsibility for the National Hockey League, overseeing initiatives that drive positive social and environmental change across Clubs, business partners, fans and the broader hockey community. He is responsible for NHL Green – the League’s sustainability platform, NHL Foundation – the League’s philanthropic arm; and Legacy Projects – philanthropic endeavors aimed at supporting local groups. Mitchell joined the NHL in 2012 as the League's first sustainability director. The NHL was the first and only professional sports league in North America to produce a sustainability report. The 2014 report led to a partnership between the League and Constellation, the Official Energy Services Provider of the NHL. As a result, Constellation counterbalanced the League’s carbon footprint for the past three seasons through the purchase of renewable energy certificates and carbon offsets. The NHL is one of the top 25 green power purchasers in the U.S.
