If you are interested in entering the ‘Best Sustainable Innovation in Sports’ category here’s some more information on why it has been included in this year’s Sports Technology Awards.

Sustainability is undoubtedly now a global concern in every facet of our lives, including sport. The key currencies of sport are passion and loyalty, meaning sports brands are very well placed to create a narrative with many millions of fans globally. However, sport doesn’t simply have the power to do this, arguably, it has the moral obligation to as well.

The environmental statistics associated with major sporting events are, sadly, breath-taking, for too many of the wrong reasons, which is why it is exciting that so many sporting brands are taking important steps to reduce the environmental impact they make. There are genuinely innovative, tech-led initiatives emerging throughout the sports sector and this category celebrates those which are leading the way in terms of sustainability.

The ‘Sustainability Innovation in Sports’ category is supported by the Athlete Media Group and will be judged by experts with outstanding knowledge of and passion for making environmental practices better within sports.

‘Best Sustainable Innovation in Sports’ is a new category but our judges will relish the chance to see innovative sports technology developments happening in this sector

There are many areas where sustainable sports innovations are emerging and we look forward to shining a light on this outstanding work at the Sports Technology Awards ceremony in 2020.
