Denver, Colorado, April 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The second annual Sustainable Sport Index (SSI) survey is live and ready for professional, minor league, and collegiate sports teams and stadium operators to participate. The SSI team uses survey data to create a publicly available, anonymized, industry-wide collective Benchmarking Report and confidential individualized reports for all responders. In SSI’s inaugural year, 20 prominent sports venues participated, with many participating teams making sustainability improvements to their venues based on SSI’s findings and stating that they would recommend participation to their peers. SSI is powered by APTIM.
SSI is a first of its kind initiative to understand the collective environmental and social impacts of the sports industry and to establish and accelerate industry sustainability best practices. By collecting metrics on sustainability and social impact activities ranging from waste and energy to diversity and inclusion, the SSI survey and subsequent report provide participating teams and venues insights into actual sustainability activities and investments their peers are implementing, as well as the ability to assess their own performance.
Sports teams, leagues, and venues representing professional, minor league, and collegiate athletics are now invited to participate in the second annual SSI Benchmarking Survey by visiting the SSI website or emailing the SSI team at email@example.com. The survey will remain open through the end of May, and the subsequent Benchmarking Report and individualized reports for each participating venue will be available by late summer.
