A new ‘one-stop shop’ has been launched to help the sports and physical activity sector to reduce its environmental impact and improve sustainability.

Created by the Sport Environment and Climate Coalition (SECC) the new collaborative hub looks to offer those in the sector with key resources to help them improve their sustainability operations.

The resources have been chosen to assist those who want to take positive action, regardless of where they are on their sustainability journey.

From clubs to venues, anyone involved with sport can engage with sustainability issues and make meaningful change.

Huw Edwards, CEO of ukactive, said: “The physical activity sector is determined to play its part in the biggest challenge of our time, by reducing our environmental impact and supporting wider efforts to reach net zero.

“Operators and suppliers in our sector support millions of people to be active every year, and we must work together to ensure they can continue to serve future generations in all communities.

“The SECC Resource Hub provides a new source of information for organisations of all sizes that want to reduce their environmental impact by adopting more effective methods and practices.

“Not only is it the right thing to do for our planet, but by changing the way we operate we can secure the long-term sustainability of the sector and meet our ambitious targets.”

SECC is a group of leading organisations in the sport, recreation and physical activity sector which works to harness the sector’s collective resources to help reduce the environmental impact of sport.

SECC members include Active Partnerships, The Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE), The British Association for Sustainable Sport (BASIS), Sport and Recreation Alliance, Sport England, sportscotland, Sport Wales, ukactive and UK Sport.
