Our Sustainability Roadmap
The United Nation's Sustainability and Development Goals (SDGs) are a roadmap to a more environmentally and socially conscious and responsible world by 2030. Our mission and purpose are closely aligned with five of these SDGs: good health and well-being, decent work and economic growth, quality education, gender equality, and responsible consumption and production.

Healthy people also means a safe environment to exercise and work in. We do our best to ensure the clubs are a safe place for all our members, but also that our workforce is well trained and diverse. Providing growth opportunities for our employees, both in the clubs and in our offices, is also crucial for us.
Healthy planet is linked to our ambition to minimise the negative impact of our activities on our planet and more specifically to reduce our carbon emissions.
This means reducing our CO2 emissions to zero for scope 1 and scope 2 emissions by 2030. Basic-Fit's scope 1 emissions come from burning gas for heating or showers in our clubs and at our headquarters. Scope 2 emissions are linked to the energy that we purchase. Beyond our main focus on emissions, we also work to address other environmental issues, such as initiatives to keep reducing our use of water.
Healthy communities focuses on our impact on the communities we operate in. This involves improving the health of these communities by increasing the levels of exercise in young people's lives. We believe that fitness has a positive effect on society. Our efforts focus especially on those who lack the opportunity to exercise, whatever their background or ability. Since 2020, we have been working with organisations that run dedicated programmes to support children and young adults. Healthy communities also means that we promote responsible behaviour among our business partners. For instance, we encourage our suppliers to reduce their environmental footprint and create a respectful work environment for their employees.
With our main partners, we support the younger generation in their learning process through sports and help young adults to acquire professional skills. We support our partners both financially and through employee volunteering or professional advice. Some of the ways our employees can get involved in corporate sponsorship are by sharing their skills and experience, giving advice about nutrition or training, and organising free group classes. In the coming years up to 2030 we aim to invest a total of €5 million in our communities through impactful partnerships.
