Collectively professional sports represent one of the world’s largest, most iconic and influential industries. As a great leveller, sport reaches an unparalleled audience and bridges the gap between culturally, politically and socio-economically diverse groups. With great power comes great responsibility, and the industry has been and continues to be a leader in advancing socially beneficial agendas. Now the industry is leading the way in advancing a more environmentally sustainable way of living and doing business.
In a sense – sport is one of the few areas where “sustainability” in the true sense of the word can be achieved.
Those sporting codes, clubs, venues and events that have made the switch to more ecologically sustainable operations are reaping the rewards – making significant operational cost savings, enjoying brand revival, attracting new supporters and opening up new sponsorship opportunities.
Across all levels of sport from community competition to professional leagues, we understand the business and operating environment of sport, its sustainability impacts and the great opportunity sport holds to enhance and communicate sustainability to a wider audience.
We offer sustainability analysis, development and implementation of best practice systems and facility development options, greenhouse gas reduction strategies, sustainable sourcing guidance, community & stakeholder engagement, cost benefit analysis & business case development, funding & investment attraction services, workshops and training for your management team, ongoing guidance and consultancy, placement of sustainability staff, provision of practical solutions and services, plus specialist green communications and marketing services to help you sell your good news story.
Guided by ISO 20121 management systems and the sustainability performance indicators set down by the Global Reporting Initiative, our systems are of the highest standard.
