Our Sustainability mission

Through the support of a climate project we are a climate neutral group. Our businesses also run initiatives to drive sustainability in sports & society:
Tennis – Our program "Advantage Earth" aims to make the tennis world more sustainable, allowing clubs and players to collect used tennis balls and recycle them via our brand Tennis-Point.
Bike & Outdoor – We are sending plastic-free parcels, and joined forces with a supplier to test the reuse of packaging materials.
Teamsports & Athleisure – We run initiatives such as reuseable packaging, minimum energy consumption & environment-friendly waste management.

Our Climate partnership

By supporting a Bulgarian windpark we reduce our carbon footprint as a group to net zero.
Saint Nikola wind farm in north-east Bulgaria contributes to the economic revival and sustainable development of the region. Located in the Kavarna municipality, about 70 km away from the town of Varna, the park consists of 52 turbines, each with a capacity of 3 MW. Since sufficient distance was left between the generators when building the park, local farmers may keep using the land for agriculture. Thanks to the project finance many programs related to the healthcare, education, culture, ecology and sports may be supported every year.
