Organisers of the Sports and Ground Expo are delighted to announce it has partnered with environmental surface technology specialists, Bio-Circle, and will run a Sustainable Solutions for Groundcare summit at next year's SAGE 2022 event.
Bio-Circle offer environmental solutions for the cleaning and maintenance of groundcare equipment, in a sustainable manner, and with a much lower environmental impact compared to traditional cleaning methods. The company uses VOC-free chemicals that are designed to reduce costs for organisations and lower the environmental impact in comparison to high pressure water systems. Bio-Circle's green credentials are supported via the new Green Code Sustainability Membership and ISO 14001.
SAGE 2022 is set to be the 'biggest outdoor trade show for the sports and grounds maintenance industry' and will take place at Three Counties Showground in Malvern on July 6-7 2022, after making its debut this year.
For the first time, it will hold a 'Sustainable Solutions for Grounds Specialists Summit', which will hold a live panel event, with experts across the industry, more information to be released soon.
This is especially relevant to the sports and groundcare sector, as the English Football League (EFL) announced earlier this month a new league-wide scheme, that will help support all 72 clubs across the country to improve their environmental practices and operations. It will also provide a way for their ground staff to undertake the training to achieve accreditation by a new Green Code Scheme.
League Two Forest Green Rovers are leading by example and have been recognised by the United Nations and FIFA as the world's greenest football club.
SAGE 2022 event manager Vicky Panniers said: "The deadline for becoming sustainable in the world of sports is now looming and our industry must now start to think of the steps they need to take to become carbon neutral and comply to the new legislation.
"SAGE is, therefore, delighted to be partnering with Bio-Circle, who are leading the way in demonstrating how businesses can lower their impact on the environment and take vital steps towards being sustainable.
"The EFL have 72 members, and, with our partners, we will be delivering live workshops at SAGE 2022 to aid these members and anyone else who is looking at how they can become more sustainable for the future.
"We're now actively supporting our partners within the sports and grounds maintenance world by delivering a resourceful environment where visitors can find out all they need to know directly from the experts at SAGE 2022." More information will be released soon.
