In Partnership – VLY and Impact 3 Zero

Volleyball Ireland has announced a new collaboration with Impact 3 Zero, a dedicated sports and sustainability ‘impact agency’.

This is aimed at helping Volleyball Ireland build a comprehensive sustainability strategy and shape the healthiest future for itself, community and environment.

“Makes complete sense”

“Our new engagement with Impact 3 Zero makes complete sense,” says Gary Stewart, CEO at Volleyball Ireland.

As one of our key formats, beach volleyball, is at a literal threat from climate change, we want to do all we can to protect our natural environment for the sport.”

“But sustainability is about more than just environmental considerations. This project will also focus on educational, equality and diversity issues which are close to our heart.”

A sport for future generations

We’re thrilled to be supporting Volleyball Ireland” says Patrick Haslett, Managing Partner at Impact 3 Zero.

We’re looking forward to helping Ireland’s ‘National Governing Body of the Year’ make volleyball a sport that future generations of Irish children can enjoy.”
