Building a positive future for sport

2020 has been quite the year then hasn’t it! We’ve all been through a lot, and uncertainty and worry still prevails, however climate change isn’t slowing for anyone or anything, so our crucial work continues.

Sport Positive Virtual Summit 2020 brought together sports leaders from across the globe to support the advance towards a low carbon future for sports operations and events, as well as the education and engagement of fans on climate change. Leaders from sports properties, governing bodies and federations as well as climate stakeholders, Government and UN bodies joined us.

In collaboration with UNFCCC Global Climate Action, and the International Olympic Committee, it is an annual meeting place for the Sports for Climate Action Framework signatories, as well as the wider sports community who are pursuing heightened sustainability efforts.

Designed specifically for those who are looking to reduce the environmental impact of their sporting event, you will hear from leaders in sport and climate, network with your peers from all over the world and gain crucial insights into the tools you need to reduce your climate footprint and engage your fans and consumers to reduce theirs.

The entire community can learn from each other, disseminate good practices, develop new tools and bolster partnerships within areas of mutual interest.

The Summit is a touchstone for the sector’s advancement; supporting year-round progress and promoting accountability and reporting.

A New Era for Sport

Environmental concern and climate change are at the centre of public concern and political consciousness right now, and sport and nature are inextricably linked. In some cases the staging for our winter sports are literally disappearing.

Crucial early adopters have been working towards sport having a lower environmental footprint for decades, but a critical mass of sport properties globally are getting behind this effort right now.

Sport has never been in a more powerful position to harness the zeitgeist to drive change that will futureproof its own activities, positively impact the world for generations to come, and evolve the sports business model towards a more sustainable economic foundation.

Join us where the future of sport is built.
