Are you a Champion of Sustainability?
GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE SPORTS MAP
How sustainable is your organisation?
How sustainable are your events, members and suppliers?
This September Global Sustainable Sport is launching a Champions of Sustainability programme, based on its innovative new sustainability framework. The programme invites sports organisations from all over the world to take part and help create a more sustainable future for sport and the planet.
Currently there is no standard framework for guiding or expressing the sustainable activities of a sports organisation.
More and more sports organisations are looking to develop their sustainability programmes, but without a clear framework to express these activities they are struggling to show the true social, economic, and environmental impact they have on society and the planet, whether positive or negative.
Without a clear framework sport cannot express its true value.
The aim of the Champions of Sustainability programme is to help every sports organisation, federation, team, league, club, event, venue, host city, nation, brand, broadcaster, and supplier become a “Champion of Sustainability”. It is both aspirational and inclusive.
Global Sustainable Sport is now inviting organisations from all over the world to join the Champions of Sustainability Programme. Global Sustainable Sport is also looking for partners to support the programme.
The programme will launch in early September with the Global Sustainable Sports Survey, which is free to participate in. The survey will provide each organisation with a preliminary assessment of their sustainability activities across the seven Sustainable Pillars of Sport.
Organisations can then join the Champions programme, which will include a full assessment of their sustainability activities.
In Spring 2024 GSS will then publish a series of reports analysing the data gathered from the GSS survey and the programme. This will be supported by The Global Sustainable Sports Awards programme, which recognises the amazing achievements of different stakeholders across the seven Sustainable Pillars of Sport.
The Champions programme will be supported by the GSS Educational Programme, a series of workshops and educational courses, which will help sports organisations move through the various stages, from planning to developing, developed, advanced and, finally, to becoming a Champion. It may take many years for an organisation to become a Champion, but by beginning the programme sports stakeholders will receive guidance and direction towards developing a strong and meaningful sustainability strategy, making a positive impact along the way.
Sport is built on developing champions.
But the planet needs everyone to become a champion, not just a champion of sustainability but also a champion FOR sustainability.
To register for the programme simply complete the registration form below and take the first step towards becoming a global Champion of Sustainability.
