THE world’s population is expected to reach nine billon by 2030 placing unprecedented pressures on the natural environment. The sports industry, like every other sector, must take responsibility to reduce its impact on the environment and a new guide has launched to help it do just that.

Launched as a result of the partnership between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Sport and Biodiversity aims to help sports organisations better understand how their activities impact on nature and identify new opportunities to enhance conservation. In addition to advice and specific examples of how sport can make a positive contribution to nature conservation, the guide outlines how stakeholders involved in the planning and implementation of sporting events - including city authorities, planners, architects, venue owners, government officials, national and international sports federations and local organising committees - can reduce and avoid impacts on biodiversity.

If there was any doubt about the need for action, you only have to read the new Game Changer report by the Climate Coalition, which documents the devastating impact that climate change is having on some of our best-loved sports. In this issue, we take a look at just how sport is being affected by our changing weather and what is being done to tackle the worst effects of climate change. (P13)

It’s time to up our game!
