Engie Brasil Energia SA: Rio Open and ENGIE neutralize CO2 emissions generated by public travel during the 2022 tournament

Besides the great shows that take place on the courts and the various attractions for the public, the Rio Open presented by Claro also has a history invisible to the naked eye, but nevertheless extremely important: sustainability. And during the 2022 edition, it will be no different. After receiving recognition from the United Nations for its initiatives, the Rio Open takes one more step in the process of neutralizing the environmental impact of its activities. In addition to the decarbonisation of the event itself, in partnership with ENGIE, the largest energy producer in the Brazilian private sector, the organization of the Rio Open also aims to neutralize the CO2 emissions linked to the trips of the public present. During the last edition in 2020, the partners had already decarbonized the event as such, a unique initiative in the ATP 500 circuit.
To strengthen the initiative and support the decarbonisation of their participation in the event, the public must include the admission code in www.neutralizarioopen.com.br and calculate the emissions related to transport to the event, free of charge nor additional commitment.
“The beauty and exuberance of the biodiversity of the great city of Rio de Janeiro, especially the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, our amphitheater for this week of events, is an inspiration to us. We want to be champions of the game of conservation, not just sitting down as spectators watching the event. For this reason, we want to go beyond holding a certified carbon neutral event. Rather, we want, on a voluntary basis, to expand this perimeter to include the calculation of emissions related to public travel until their arrival at the event, also neutralizing them. For this reason, everyone’s participation is fundamental so that we can do the Rio Open, every time , an even more zero carbon event ”, declares Marcia Casz, director of the Rio Open.
In 2020, also in partnership with ENGIE, the Rio Open offset 400 tonnes of carbon generated by the setting up, operation and dismantling of the event. In addition to neutralizing all national and international air journeys of athletes and technical teams, and the waste generated by carbon credits allocated by the Jirau hydroelectric plant. “Our objective is to act to accelerate the transition to a carbon neutral economy by reducing energy consumption and more sustainable solutions that include the reduction and neutralization of emissions. We are very happy to once again use the carbon credits generated by our power plants to make the Rio Open even more sustainable ”, comments Mauricio Bähr, CEO of ENGIE in Brazil.
In partnership with ENGIE, the Rio Open drew up a Strategic Plan, the implementation of which began in 2020. The objective is for the event to be a model of environmental responsibility in line with the main world sporting events. The work encompasses the neutralization of emissions linked to the holding of the tournament and the development of sustainable actions.
This commitment begins long before the event, when the principles of circularity in the waste chain are applied through three stages: reduction, recycling and reuse. An example of a reduction is the reusable cups available in bars. In terms of recycling, actions have been taken to eliminate organic waste intended for composting and recyclable materials for delivery to approved cooperatives. All food and beverage dealers must also use recyclable materials.
The emphasis is on the reuse of materials. In this context during the tournament, the bracelets are made from racket strings used during competitions and on sale in the official product store, La Boutique. The organization of the event also consists of disposing of canvas objects for the use of partner cooperatives, bottle caps to be exchanged for wheelchairs and balls and remains of uniforms for social projects.
The event’s vision for sustainability integrates initiatives in the social field, economic impact with the creation of jobs and income and the use of the power of sport to promote environmental awareness and conservation.
From a sporting point of view, the tournament is also known for its high level. This is the first ATP World Tour 500 ever held in Brazil and is part of a select group of 13 tournaments known as the ATP 500, one of the 22 most important events on the ATP calendar and the only one to take place in Brazil. . This qualifies it as the most important annual sporting event in Rio de Janeiro and one of three ATP level events played on clay with Hamburg and Barcelona. For the 2022 version, the Top 10 duo, Matteo Berrettini and Casper Ruud, Olympic medalist Pablo Carreño Busta and revelation Carlos Alcaraz have already confirmed their presence.
