Criteria for Listing Events

For an event to be listed in the FitPlanet Green Events Directory, the event organizer must satisfy one or more of the following:

  1. Have taken the Pledge of Sustainability either through Active Endurance or through FitPlanet. The Pledge requires event organizers to commit to at least 9 eco-friendly practices that can be viewed in the event listing.
  2. Have taken the Multiday Event Pledge of Sustainability with FitPlanet. The Multiday Event Pledge launched in May 2010 and includes three categories: (a) event operations, (b) accommodation and food services, and (c) transportation. It is appropriate for multiday events such as cycling stage races, athletic training camps, and summer and winter athletic games.
  3. Be certified to the Council for Responsible Sport (CRS) standard. CRS is the 'gold standard' requiring events to earn at least 22 out of 41 credits in five categories.

We encourage athletes to support events that display the FitPlanet Pledge, the Dow Live Earth Pledge, and/or the CRS certification on their websites as they provide assurance the event is implementing substantial and verifiable environmental practices.
