Sport England is responsible for growing and developing grassroots sport and getting more people active across England, and has the vision to transform lives and communities through sport and physical activity. The sector will be impacted by climate change, it contributes to climate change, and has an incredible opportunity to influence climate action across society, using the power of sport as a change agent.
We have been appointed by Sports England to work on two projects to accelerate action on carbon and broader sustainability.
The first project focuses on Sport England’s operations; we will calculate their carbon footprint, set ambitious targets, develop a decarbonisation strategy and support its implementation across the organisation using our GET SET ZERO methodology and tools.
The second project is to do a GB-wide consultation on sustainability in the sports and physical activity sector, and develop a strategy for how Sport England can influence and support clubs and facilities all over the country to progress their approach to sustainability.
This work builds on Useful Projects’ long history of working in the sports sector.
