Abstract

This chapter discusses economic and environmental impacts of three major sport events held in the United Kingdom. Their economic impacts are measured using spending survey information and an input-output modeling framework, and their environmental impacts are assessed using the ecological footprint (EF) and environmental input-output analysis (ENVIO) approaches. The chapter shows how this combination of approaches can enhance our understanding of the environmental impacts of different sport events and factors influencing the scale of their impacts. It describes the methods used to assess the economic and environmental impacts of the selected events and their key strengths. The EF and ENVIO methods discussed in the chapter have the advantage of providing measures of environmental impact using single units of analysis. The ENVIO approach is used to provide an assessment of the environmental impact of economic activity. The chapter describes the methods used to assess the economic and environmental impacts of the selected events and their key strengths.
