Susan Groh is Associate Director of the National Football League’s Environmental Program and a founding partner of the consulting firm of US Green Sports. In partnership with NFL special events, Susan works to lighten the environmental impact of Super Bowl and Pro Bowl by working closely with community partners to repurpose materials, coordinate donation of prepared, unserved food, divert waste at event venues, and develop community projects that leave a positive “green” legacy in the host community. Susan has developed numerous community greening projects that provide environmental and community benefits to local event host communities. She has worked closely with federal, state and non-profit agencies as well as school departments and NFL sponsors to create these “greening” projects.
Her work for the National Football League has included the management of an innovative project called Super Kids-Super Sharing that brings together thousands of school children each year in the Super Bowl host community to collect books, sports equipment and school supplies for donation to local children in need. This program has placed hundreds of thousands of books and pieces of sports equipment into the hands of children who might not otherwise have access to these items. Susan has created community partnerships and planned and implemented large-scale community media events on behalf of the National Football League in connection with this program.
