We want to reduce the use of disposable items during the World Cup in Kvitfjell. The disposable articles used must be able to be recycled as compost.
The volunteer cup
During the World Cup in 2023, we will distribute thermos cups to all our volunteer, staff and crew to reduce the amount of disposable cups in the residual waste. We estimate a reduction of 10,000 disposable cups as a result of this!
All energy supplied to World Cup Kvitfjell must come from renewable sources. Here we have entered into a collaboration with Gudbrandsdal Energi, and together we will think innovatively for secure sustainable solutions, and not least try to reduce our total energy consumption.
World Cup Kvitfjell will actively engage in the important work to reduce alienation. Absenteeism is a key challenge for public mental health. Together with key players and organizations such as Mental Helse Ungdom (mental health youth), we seek to find relevant concepts to involve and include during our events.
We will set requirements for all our partners. Deliveries must be made in an environmentally friendly manner. We prepare contracts and agreements where this is specified with specific requirements.
We will be looking for new partners who want to achieve the same as us, who we can learn from, build together with and ultimately manage to achieve the goals of a more sustainable event.
Small victories on the way to reaching the goal
From the event in 2020 to 2022, we reduced residual waste by 32%, which corresponds to 700 kg. This was done at the same time as the scale of the event grew, so the real reduction is greater. Much of the improvement lies in better organized sorting, better and more information for both clerks, visitors and partners, smarter purchasing and not least the good collaboration with Midt-Gudbrandsdalen Renovation.
