BASIS ten-point plan to Build Back Better

A ten-point plan for how the British sport and physical activity sector can Build Back Better for a more resilient, more sustainable future

From June to November 2020 BASIS sought views on the sport and physical activity sector’s approach to sustainability and whether the sector could, and should, grasp the opportunity to build back better after the COVID-19 pandemic in a more resilient and environmentally sustainable way. A follow up study, conducted in the summer of 2021, reinforced the findings of the initial consultation.

This report provides a high-level policy response to the findings of the survey in the form of a ten-point plan for how British sport can build back better for a more resilient, more sustainable future. The commitments address identified gaps in co-ordinated leadership; knowledge and understanding; and measurement and verification of sustainability performance. The recommendations primarily call for changes to funding, governance and the assessment of risk for the sector. Together, the ten-point plan forms a foundation on which to build a collaborative, co-ordinated response for British the sport and physical activity sector to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic.
