#Pivot4Planet: Sustainability at Netball World Cup 2023

Netball is characterised by teamwork, fast footwork, swift changes of direction without losing momentum, defensive and attacking strategies, and – of course – goals. Tackling the climate emergency requires similar skills, across all sectors, including sport.

In response to the climate emergency, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the NWC2023 is committed to hosting a low-carbon tournament that helps to increase resource efficiency and leaves a positive social impact. As such, the event aims to ‘tread lighter’ on the environment while also inspiring everyone involved.

Our aim is to host a low-carbon tournament that helps to increase resource efficiency and leaves a positive social impact.

It is no simple task, so we are guided by the Statement, which has 10 pillars or focus areas in which we strive impact:

GHG emissions reduction
Resource efficiency
Waste management
Sustainable procurement
Sustainable TRASNPORT
Responsible tourism and accommodation
Social impact
Stakeholder engagement
Monitoring and reporting
Positive legacy

For this to work best, we encourage you to #putyourhandsup and #pivot4planet, whether you are a tournament service provider, an athlete, an official or a supporter.

By being considered and purposeful in how we host, participate in and support the NWC2023, we set netball up as a sport that represents our shared values as a society.

An important part of #pivot4planet at NWC2023 is knowing whether the tournament has realised the intentions set out in the sustainability statement. While we will monitor performance in the identified focus areas during the tournament, a full report will be made available after the final whistle has sounded and the cup handed to the winning team.

While we work closely with a range of partners and service providers, you as an individual are equally as important in landing the sustainability goals of the tournament.

Please join us by reading, signing and committing to the NWC2023 Pledge for a sustainable tournament and beyond.

What is a low carbon event?

A ‘low-carbon’ event is one designed, organised and executed to reduce GHG emissions.

The carbon footprint needs to be measured, and effort should be made towards offsetting the carbon emissions associated with the event.
