IT MATTERS

TRITON CSR - CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY

Corporate Social Responsibility is a matter we take very seriously at TRITON and part of our MISSION & POLICY.

Through the World Series, we contact thousands of athletes, family members, friends and corporate partners that puts us in a unique privileged position to capitalize on this tremendous potential proximity to make a difference.

LOFF , TRITON official non-profitable charity partner’s name, means, Leave Only Friends and Footprints. . One of LOFF’s project is directly connected to its name and it relates to the environment and our impact in it, and this is the project TRITON Portimão is tackling on this first edition.

INTRODUCTION:

There is less than 2% of drinkable water on our planet. Some tribes in Africa already must walk more than three miles, daily, to find drinkable water. It’s on us to change behaviours and make a difference.

An average runner generates a trash of up to 3 to 4 bottles or cups of single use plastics, per hour of competition, and about 750 ml to 1.0 litters of water per hour. Large events, with thousands of participants, are wasting thousands of litters of water and are generating trash of hundreds of thousands of plastic containers, per event.

We see our roll in doing the best we can to saving water and promoting drinking tap-water, eliminating, or reducing as much as possible one-use plastic containers, and assist in educating and motivating people, by giving the example, to take the right actions by applying these principles and measures, helping us making a difference.

On a foot race, an average stop to hydrate, for an average person will take no more than 5 seconds. On average, on a half marathon distance race, a participant will waste no more than a minute to hydrate if they stop 10 to 12 times (the number of times they usually hydrate during the race). An amazing trade off outcome for the 10 to 12 bottles or cups of trash usually generate by participant. It takes 5 seconds to make a huge difference!
