Ecosport Awards 2015

Presentation

The industry and retail of sports articles and equipment represent a booming economic sector employing a million people in Europe in a number of different fields: engineering, sales, logistics, communications, etc. Well known for its leading brands, this dynamic sector also plays an important social role. It promotes sporting activities, and consequently health and solidarity, and contributes to the comfort and safety of 70 million participants in sports, both occasional and regular.

From 2015 onwards these sports companies will be able to get involved in even more challenges in the field of environmental protection by competing for the first ECOSPORT AWARDS, which will give awards to the best initiatives in the sector concerned.



Once the jury, chaired by the world famous climber Catherine Destivelle, has selected the winning companies, the ECOSPORT AWARDS will be presented in November 2015 in Paris at a gala evening.

By Catherine Destivelle

All my life, it has truly been an extraordinary privilege from me to climb being so close to Nature. It made me realize how beautiful yet fragile she is.

Therefore, i am looking forward with enthusiasm to chairing the first ECOSPORT AWARDS jury in a highly innovative sporting field.
