The LTA recognises that we have an important role to play in addressing issues related to sustainability, protecting and supporting the environment and tackling and reducing our climate impacts, including at our major events.
The effects of climate change and other environmental challenges will increasingly have an impact on tennis in Britain, and it is critical that we take responsibility for the impacts we have, act to minimise them, and use our platform to spread awareness, advocate for and support positive action.
Last year, the LTA committed to the UN’s Sport for Climate Action Framework, and in spring 2022, we will publish the organisation’s first ever sustainability action plan, setting out how we will address sustainability considerations across our own operations and major events, and in our role as national governing body for tennis in Britain, supporting the wider tennis community.
We are committed to ensuring our major events meet high standards of sustainability, by reducing climate impacts, ensuring we utilise resources efficiently to reduce waste, and consider our impact on the natural environment. Further details of specific plans for 2022 and beyond will be published in due course.
