The 2014 Arctic Winter Games hosted its first “green games” thanks to Kinross’ Gold Level sponsorship. The Games are the world’s largest northern multi-sport and cultural event, and was held in Fairbanks, Alaska with a focus on recycling. The 2014 Games collected 8,156 pounds of plastic, aluminum and paper and 3,300 in organics for a total of 11,456 pounds of recyclables.
Kinross’ financial investment and the positive impact on the community will live on after the Games. The recycling containers will be re-used and located in different areas in Fairbanks for years to come.
