Climate Action Sustainable Innovation in Sport

Join us at the 2nd annual Sustainable Innovation in Sport conference on 22-23 February, 2017 in

Munich, Germany – a two day meeting bringing together industry stakeholders and influencers who

are engendering positive environmental impact through sport.

This event follows a highly successful first edition of Sustainable Innovation in Sport in 2015 which

was launched during the historic COP21 in Paris, and is the culmination of ongoing work with sports

groups driving for sustainability to be an integral part of overall strategy.

This two day meeting will deep dive into how the wider industry can impact the reduction of carbon

emissions of large scale sports by ensuring sustainable operations, as well as how we can engage and

educate consumers and fans more broadly to encourage sustainable behavior change.
