Sport England tells its sports: funding will depend on fighting climate crisis

Sport England has intentions to ask sports to go out of their way to fight climate issues as a condition to receive funding a source (the Guardian) can reveal. The move signaled by Chris Boardman the body's chair said his organisation planned to work closely with sports to better protect the environment. "The status quo is no longer an option" he said. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2023/oct/11/sport-england-tells-sports-fight-climate-crisis-or-youll-get-no-funding

                      Sport England's decision to link funding with climate action, as reported by The Guardian, is a commendable step in addressing the climate crisis. This move, articulated by Chris Boardman, the organization's chair, signifies a progressive shift toward environmental responsibility within the sports sector. By making climate protection a condition for funding, it sends a powerful message that the status quo of environmental inaction is no longer acceptable. It highlights the growing awareness of the role sports can play in climate mitigation, promoting sustainability, and setting a positive example for the broader community.

                        I hope that other sports funding bodies around the world will follow Sport England's lead in climate action.
