Team GB and University of Hull

A Waterline event, delivered by the University of Hull

Join us to find out more about the University’s work in carbon removal, including our net zero project with Team GB.

With the ambition of becoming a leading UK sports organisation in their actions and advocacy around sustainability, Team GB have been working with the University of Hull’s Energy and Environment Institute (EEI) and consultancy Perform Green to understand their Carbon Footprint and formulate a strategy to reduce this.  The University of Hull are the Official University Partner of Team GB and our partnership is born out of a synergy between our ambitions and values.  Together we deliver strategic projects across key areas such as talent development, performance, innovation, and sustainability.

The British Olympic Association (BOA), the National Olympic Committee (NOC) behind Team GB, selects the best athletes to compete in the 32 summer and seven winter Olympic sports at the greatest sporting competition in the world.  The Energy and Environment Institute at the University comprises 180 researchers who conduct world-leading interdisciplinary research, innovation and knowledge exchange at the interfaces between sustainable energy, environmental resilience and the challenges of transitioning to a carbon Net Zero future. Perform Green is a values-led consultancy with a mission to create a green and smart society, helping organisations of all sizes to innovate, reduce impact on the environment, and improve productivity and customer service.

Hear from Dave Glassey, Team GB’s Chief Finance Officer, and speakers from the EEI and Perform Green, about Team GB’s journey so far towards net zero, including:

  • setting a baseline benchmark from which to develop the strategy
  • achieving clarity and direction on how the BOA can become more sustainable over time
  • securing organisational support for the ambitions and targets
  • supporting clear communication of the sustainability strategy with stakeholders.

There will be an open Question and Answer session following the presentations, and the chance to talk more informally with our speakers over lunch following the event.
