Third Party Evaluation

The Council for Responsible Sport works with a network of experienced event sustainability professionals to witness, document, and confirm on-the-ground implementation of event plans and policies, and to create and provide a set of observations and recommendations for future improvement as we are all on the journey to responsible sport together. These individual evaluators serve as the third-party between event organizers and the Council for Responsible Sport to enhance the transparency and ensure the validity of efforts and statements by both parties about the responsible actions of events.
