The Sport Environment and Climate Coalition (SECC) has created a ‘one-stop shop’ for key resources on sports sustainability.
A group of leading organisations in the sport, recreation and physical activity sector have launched a new collaborative resources hub aimed at supporting the sector to reduce its environmental impact and improve sustainability. SECC works to harness the sector’s collective resources to help reduce the environmental impact of sport, recreation and physical activity and contribute to the UK’s transition to net zero.
The SECC Resource Hub serves as a one-stop shop for the most relevant resources on sustainability and sport. This carefully selected set of resources has been brought together to assist those who want to take positive action, regardless of where they are on their sustainability journey. From clubs to venues, anyone involved with sport can engage with sustainability issues and make meaningful change.
A spokesperson for SECC said, “The climate and biodiversity crisis requires every part of our society to understand their environmental impacts, including sport. The effects of climate change are having increasing levels of disruption at both the professional and grassroots level. The launch of this resource hub demonstrates the sector’s continuing dedication to positive climate action and the safeguarding of our planet for future generations.”
Mo Baines, APSE Chief Executive, “As a provider of carbon literacy training, APSE recognises the importance of high-quality resources in the collective effort to reduce carbon emissions. We are proud to be part of a collaboration that understands the significant role local-level organisations will play in the mission to decarbonise. Innovation and resilience are required if we are to create a society that we will be proud to leave to future generations, and SECC will provide enormous help to the sports sector as we seek to achieve this. We look forward to promoting this fantastic collaboration at future APSE events.”
SECC’s membership is UK-wide and includes: Active Partnerships; Association of Public Service Excellence (APSE), the Sport and Recreation Alliance; UK Active; British Association for Sustainable Sport (BASIS); Sport England; Sport Northern Ireland; Sport Scotland; Sport Wales; and UK Sport.
