What is the annual Summit?

The annual Green Sports Alliance Summit is the largest and most influential gathering for the sports community to unite around sustainability. The event brings together hundreds of industry stakeholders to learn and share better practices and the latest innovations in greening operations, advancing the supply chain and engaging fans.

Why it Matters

The sports industry is uniquely positioned to make large scale impact on the most pressing environmental and social issues that our world faces, by decreasing the carbon footprint of many of our largest public spaces and mobilizing communities to take action. The Summit seeks to highlight better practices for enhancing performance and fostering a dialogue with stakeholders and fans about environmental stewardship and social justice.

The 10th Annual 2020 Green Sports Alliance Summit, “Game On! The Future of Sports & Sustainability” brought together leaders in sports and sustainability, along with sustainability leaders from other industries and sectors to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best-in-class solutions and innovations for the next decade.
