We are happy to join Sport and Sustainability International who are made up of a group of sport experts across the industry. On the Executive Board is Julia Palle, Sustainability Director, Formula E, Philippe Duperrex, former Senior Corporate Governance & Compliance Officer at UEFA and Vincent Gaillard, CEO of European Professional Club Rugby.
As travel can be up to 80-90% of total emissions in sport we will be working on sustainable solutions, partnerships and reduction projects.
As Julia Palle – Formula E mentions “#Travel is the biggest footprint contributor to #sports events hence why SandSI—Sport and Sustainability International is delighted to announce a new #partnership with Fly Green Alliance (FGA) to #support our #members and share best practices to take action and #advance#sustainability in and through sports!”
We’ve also joined the Sustainability.sport platform as experts in green travel in the sport sector.
In addition we have developed the first Green Travel Alliance in Sport (GTAS) and look forward to building it further with SandSi and our new partners. More to come soon.
