The PTO & Sustainability

The PTO mission is clear. To ‘represent, support and promote the interests of women and men professional triathletes, both by investing in them financially and marketing them, together and equally’.

Building a sustainable business, able to thrive and contribute to the wider world across environmental and social touchpoints is important to us – and as an athlete-owned organisation, we understand the power and influence sport can have. 

Our Climate Commitment

We have signed up to the Sports for Climate Action Framework (S4CA) and Race to Zero initiatives. 

As part of this, we commit to reducing our Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 50% by 2030, and to reach net zero by 2040, in line with the latest science.

Our Sustainability Journey

We are at the start of our Sustainability journey, but have taken our cue from the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a collection of 17 interlinked global targets designed to be a ‘shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future’. 

All the goals matter. However, we recognise that as a new organisation, we need to have focus in order to have impact. It is something we have learnt through our dedication to the sport of triathlon, but also from other, more established bodies. 

As such, our initial focus is on #3 Good Health and Wellbeing, #5 Gender Equality and #12 Responsible Consumption and Production.
