July 1st, 2021 – Sports and Sustainability International (SandSI) is pleased to announce a partnership with Oxygène in a move that aims to mobilize, and measure, the sustainability movement across the sports industry.
Oxygène is a Sports Agency that specializes in advising and guiding sports organizations towards their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In a joint collaboration with a panel of sustainability experts, Oxygène has recently announced the launch of OXY Index, a digital tool designed to measure sustainability initiatives, specifically for the sports sector.
Through this partnership, SandSI Members will have access to the OXY Index, which will enable member organizations to establish benchmarks around their carbon footprints, while measuring their activities and progress along the way.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Oxygène on this exciting initiative.” stated Philippe Duperrex, Secretary-General of SandSI. “We are confident the OXY Index will provide our Members and industry leaders with the tools they need to measure the impact of their activities, with the aim of improving their practices and working towards the SDG’s they have set out to achieve.”
“OXY is here to bring SandSI’s Members a tool to measure sustainable commitment that highlights ambitious credible initiatives. We stand for results aims more than for tool aims. We believe in creating value on the SDGs. We are happy to join and support all members towards a new responsible economic model.” affirms Laurent Marchal Oxygene CEO.
Together, SandSI and Oxygène are committed to empowering leaders throughout the sports industry, and across all industries, to make better informed decisions about their sustainability practices and strategies. With this initiative, SandSI and Oxygène hope to encourage businesses to take meaningful and measurable actions towards their SDGs, in turn helping them accelerate their efforts of improving sustainable and economic developments within their organizations, as well as for their surrounding communities.
