Sustainability & Sport

๐Ÿค” How does Sustainability impact Sport?

โ›ˆ We had heavy rain last night.

๐Ÿ˜จ All training & matches have been cancelled at my local rugby club today.

๐Ÿ˜• Thankfully one of the teams I coach is playing away and the match is on.

๐Ÿ’ฏ Did you know that about 33% of grass roots football pitches lose up to 2 months of the year from flooding in the UK?

๐Ÿ’ฏ And by 2050 25% of English league football grounds will be at risk from flooding every year according to Playing Against the Clock.

And it's not just flooding we need to deal with.ย 

๐Ÿ’ฏ Extreme heat conditions are impacting sports people and athletes with Dehydration (36%), Heat stroke/exhaustion(24%) and Muscle Cramping (16%) being the most common reported impacts.

๐ŸŽฏ When you are considering your sustainability strategy, metrics and actions for your business think about the broader considerations and impacts.

One of my favourite definitions of sustainability is:

๐ŸŒ "Treating the world as if we planned to stay" ๐ŸŒŽย 

๐Ÿค” If you are a coach of a local sports team how have you been affected this weekend from extreme weather?
