This collaboration will support the environmental efforts of BASIS members by implementing resource management solutions that reduces members’ environmental impact and assists their transition from a linear economic model to a more circular one.
BASIS has provided expert help to sports clubs, venues, and governing bodies for over a decade – helping them to understand their impacts, set targets and implement processes to improve their environmental performance. BASIS’s 12 Principles are a comprehensive framework that guides sports organisations in achieving environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

- Paper Cup Recycling – a layered UK-wide collection service that ensures paper cups are recycled in the most cost effective and operationally efficient manner
- Waste and Recycling Stations – easy to use and visually impactful recycling stations, all of which are manufactured in the UK (from UK sourced recycled materials where possible) and which are proven to collect targeted materials separately and free from contamination to facilitate onward recycling
- Circular Products – transforming post-consumer material back into desirable new products that are designed for circularity. In 2022, co-cre8 launched the Honest brand and first product – the Honest Bottle (www.honestbottle.com), the first and only reusable bottle made in the UK from UK sourced recycled material, that can also be easily recycled at end of life.
