Sport is unique among industries for its universal appeal and ability to touch and inspire millions of fans. Leagues and teams also have a unique responsibility to lead by positive example when it comes to societal and environmental challenges.
Like all organizations, sports teams and leagues have an environmental footprint that must be measured and managed. South Pole is uniquely positioned to not only provide offsets for team & fan travel, but to assist sports organizations in communicating their accomplishments to a fan base that is increasingly hungry to know that their team is a good citizen.
Our services are an indispensable part of an overall citizenship and sustainability strategy. We have worked with some of the biggest names in sports driving positive change by supporting projects around the world.
