VISION STATEMENT
In 2030, humans have a greater awareness and concern for the environment, and take action topreserve it.

STATE OF PLAY

The increasing human population is having an increasingly negative effect on the environment. From air, water and ground pollution, to climate change, deforestation, ocean and rain acidification, ozone depletion and global warming. The more of us there are, the more space and resources we take up, and the more waste we produce, without means to effectively dispose of it. Ironically, even as sports promote health, they can also degrade the environment upon which good health depends via the environmentally irresponsible development of sports facilities, littering and waste generation by participants and spectators, and energy consumption1.

OUR MISSION 2030

To make a change, the global SAPA Movement must:

  • Make a systematic change towards an approach of Sport for All delivery that is eco-friendly, in policy, events and infrastructure.
  • Develop forms of sport that are compatible with the natural environment, or look for innovative uses for existing facilities and the built environment.
  • Lead by example – be aware of our personal impact on the environment and educate those around us.

Sustainability is central to everything Forest Green Rovers do. From solar panels and electric vehicle charging points at The New Lawn stadium to their vegan matchday menu, they strive to be the greenest football club in the world. The entire club is powered by 100% green energy from Ecotricity, some of which is generated with the solar panels on the stadium roof and the solar tracker at the ground entrance.
 
It is supported by Ecotricity, EESI Group Services, Grundon, Quorn and Sea Shepherd.

SFORAE LOGO

The Sport for All and the Environment (SForAE) project raises awareness of the benefits of implementing ecological behaviour in Sport for All. Its purpose is environmental education related to sport and the promotion of sport in a safe and clean environment. The project supports different sport events with promotional materials and free of charge canned drinks. The events must be organised sustainably, including collection and recycling of empty cans. The project is funded by the European Commission Erasmus + programme and has developed recommendations that can be found in the “Green Guidelines. How to conduct a sustainable sport event”.
