Is sports and sustainability your game?

At a time when the EU is raising its climate ambitions and promising to reduce its emissions, sport must also jump on the bandwagon and accelerate its ecological transition. How do you prepare for this future with the community houses, ice rinks, outdoor facilities, sports halls, stadiums, swimming pools and more?

On June 13, 2024 the PlayGreen Summit takes place at the Duurzaamheidsfabriek Dordrecht, The Netherlands.

Experience 50 European companies showcasing their innovative and sustainable approaches for sports facilities. Discover them at the EXPO. An extensive CONFERENCE program brings you the latest insights on sustainability in sports with international speakers. Go to the program below to see who you can meet.
