Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced that they’ve secured the naming rights to the former home of the Seattle Supersonics and will rename it “Climate Pledge Arena.”
The venue will host the new NHL franchise along with WNBA’s Seattle Storm.
Bezos made the announcement about the new name on Instragram, writing “Instead of calling it Amazon Arena, we’re naming it Climate Pledge Arena as a regular reminder of the urgent need for climate action. It will be the first net zero carbon certified arena in the world, generate zero waste from operations and events, and use reclaimed rainwater in the ice system to create the greenest ice in the NHL.”
Some good reaction to the silly virtue signaling move by Bezos.
