Drawing on a diverse blend of academic specialisms in multiple schools, we deliver an integrated approach to tackling a number of critical issues.
With its leading reputation for sports-related research - including No. 1 QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017-2023 - and an extensive network of grass roots to global sporting bodies, Loughborough University provides an exciting collaborative environment to explore and address the key climate issues in sport.
We recognise the importance of uniting academic research with all aspects of the sports industry to advance knowledge and deliver impact.
We work alongside a variety of organisations, including:
The British Association for Sustainable Sport
