Sustainable Innovation In Sport

Following the success of its two previous editions, Sustainable Innovation in Sport is coming back in 2018, bringing together leaders within the global sports scene; sports leagues and clubs, federations, sports venues, broadcasters, Governments, UN, private entities, and NGOs, among others, to discuss how the sports industry can inspire and encourage for the fight against climate change.

Launched during COP21 with the haut patronage of the French Ministry of Cities, Youth and Sport, this meeting began to drive serious stakeholder engagement and action around reducing the impact of sport on the environment. Our aim is to stimulate the stakeholders and galvanise action to guarantee operations are sustainable and to ensure they are engaging, educating and positively influencing fans’ behaviour and choices to more sustainable ones.

The 3rd annual edition of Sustainable Innovation in Sport, will be taking place on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2018, in the Amsterdam ArenA.
