13:00 - 14:30 Sustainability & Legacy: How can sports events help to mitigate short-term impacts on the environment and to leverage longer-term impacts for meaningful change?

By their very nature, major sports events cannot be seen as positive for the environment. They typically involve large scale international travel, extensive use of energy resources and considerable on-site waste. However, over the last decade, many sports stakeholders have played an important role in minimising their carbon footprint and using their widespread influence to promote environmental causes and practices in the long-term.
While sport cannot be expected to completely close-up shop in the name of the environment, how can sports events innovatively reduce their short-term impacts on the environment while leveraging their long-term positive impacts?
