To mark World Earth Day (22 April), British Triathlon and the three home nations are launching a Sustainability Commission to drive the sport forward with the aim to keep sustainability at the heart of everything we do.
The Commission is looking for people from the triathlon community that have relevant expertise to drive the sport forward in its desire to be more sustainable across the board including limiting the impact the sport has on the natural environment it relies so heavily upon.
British Triathlon is looking for members of the community to apply for a role on the commission. Up to 10 people are required to form part of the commission and will be tasked with developing and implementing a sustainability policy and monitor the progress of these plans.
Since 2019, British Triathlon has had an Environment and Sustainability Committee which has led on making sustainable changes within the Governing Body, but the implementation of the Sustainability Commission means that the changes can be more widespread to limit the impact of Triathlon and multisport on the environment.
Applications for the Commission are now being received and if you feel like you have the relevant skills and passion, please view the role description here.
Ben Cummings, Director of Commercial and Major Events and a member of British Triathlon’s Environment and Sustainable Committee, said: “We’re incredibly proud to be launching the Sustainability Commission. We have announced the commission on World Earth Day in a drive to further cement our commitment to sustainability across the sport all the way from grassroots to our performance teams.
“We need our community to support this, and I would encourage anyone with expertise and interest in sustainability and sport to get involved. I know that together we can achieve great things and I am looking forward to promoting a healthy and sustainable sport for the future generation who share our passion for swim, bike and run.”
