We’re embedding sustainability management into every aspect of Volvo Ocean Race, working to minimise the footprint of the Race Village, of the permanent and touring Boatyard, and of Race Teams, sponsor activation, host city operations, and even the manufacture of our race boats.
Impressive examples already exist and innovation abounds in reducing the race’s footprint throughout the global Volvo Ocean Race family.
We're working together to minimise waste and single-use plastics and to recover as many resources as possible. Energy consumption will be monitored to ensure we have the most energy efficient Race Village as possible. We will conserve water and protect the surrounding waterways and local environment from Race Village and Boatyard operations, and on-water activities.
