Sustainability Playbook for Major Sport Organizing Committees

Sustainability Playbook for Major Sport Organizing Committees

How to use this Playbook & Toolkit

This Sustainability Playbook & Toolkit has been created to help the Special Olympics USA Games and other large event organizers be more effective and efficient in implementing robust and successful sustainability programs and projects. The Playbook draws from the deep expertise of team members and first-hand experience gained at the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle—the first time the Special Olympics USA Games have had a comprehensive sustainability program. The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games demonstrated that sustainability has the potential to inspire meaningful connections between Special Olympics USA Games stakeholders, and leave lasting, positive legacies for the local community and the broader Special Olympics movement. A robust sustainability program covers both environmental and social issues. For more information on what a sustainable event involves, (refer to page 39 for the Sustainability Strategy used for the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games).
