Deloitte Romania assisted the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee (COSR) in the effort of adopting sustainability practices in sports, by creating training modules (e-learning) that will guide dozens of federations, clubs, sponsors and other stakeholders in the field of Olympic sports in Europe in the implementation of strategies to reduce the environmental footprint of sports events, especially by reducing the carbon emissions associated with them.

Deloitte's support came in the context of the Green Flame project, financed through the Erasmus+ Program by the European Commission, in which the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee is a partner, alongside the Portuguese Olympic Committee and non-governmental entities such as European Network for Innovation and Knowledge (EUNIK), CuiCui Studios and Sport Evolution Alliance (SEA), under the coordination of the Spanish Olympic Committee.

Deloitte Romania got involved in the project following an invitation from COSR, by developing, as a pro bono contribution, the training modules on the identification and measurement of the sustainability impact, the carbon footprint - understanding, measurement, and reduction strategies -, and respectively “green” supply.

The modules created by Deloitte Romania’s team of experts also offer several recommendations regarding the prioritization of different actions.

The training modules created by Deloitte and COSR were recently launched in Bucharest, together with the Sport Go Green app, also developed within the Green Flame program, which will allow the organizers of sporting events to measure and compare the level of carbon emissions in various stages of the preparation and running of the competitions.
