windmill tournament

Case – 11 June 2019

The first climate-neutral Ultimate Frisbee tournament worldwide

Every year the largest Ultimate Frisbee tournament takes place in Amsterdam. 80 teams are selected from all over the world. In addition to the largest, they also want to be the most sustainable tournament. The organization does as much as possible to be sustainable. In addition to minimizing plastic use by allowing players to eat from Frisbees, vegetarian and local food and recycling, Windmill also looks at its CO₂ emissions.

The biggest negative impact at Windmill is the CO₂ emissions because the participants travel to Windmill from far and wide. From California to New Zealand and from Singapore to Venezuela, every year 1,600 players appear in Amsterdam from 36 countries around the world. On average this amounts to around 500 kg of CO₂ emissions per participant during their trip to the tournament.


Climate Neutral
Together with Windmill, we calculated the impact in terms of tonnes of CO₂ produced. By investing in our projects aimed at reducing CO₂ emissions, Windmill strives to be completely climate neutral.

Climate sponsor
This climate neutrality is partly sponsored by Meelunie B.V. The Meelunie B.V. is a company based in Amsterdam that not only shares the brand name 'Windmill',but attaches as much value to sustainability as Windmill does.
