QWASI brings #BYOC (Bring your own container) to the Council for Responsible Sport. The CRS is a non-profit organization with a vision where sporting and other events are produced sustainably. Its mission is to provide an independent verification for the best social and environmental event based practices. As the world’s leading responsible sports and events certification program, the Council for Responsible Sport is paving the way for the sporting events industry that embraces purpose through play.
QWASI is a mobile innovation company with a focus on contactless technology and sustainability. In 2021, QWASI launched #BYOC Bring Your Own Cup, a solution which allows participants to tag reusable water bottles with NFC and QR to authenticate the bottles as well as scan to note waste reduction. QWASI also offers sustainable signage which allows organizations to reduce printing by creating assets which are NFC and QR enabled, and mobile optimized pages to better showcase up to date information.
As in-person events return, one time use cups and bottles are contributing to growing global waste issues. Additionally, overprinting is commonplace because printing is not digitized. Lastly, there has been no way to track the data around waste or create an ecosystem to return products for reuse.
As a CRS supplier, QWASI now offers event managers custom branded #BYOC assets, enabling participants to engage with up to date event content as well as join the waste reduction movement by noting their contributions. The end to end solution supplied by QWASI includes customer branded #BYOC tags, the software to manage mobile pages and data insights, as well as the implementation team to support the complete program. The #BYOC mobile pages have the ability to be branded for advertising sponsors to generate revenue, as well as additional QR and NFC activated mobile pages for registration, check-in, event details, programs, menus, giveaways, support tents, sponsored booths, as well as any and all custom signage.
The Council for Responsible Sport and QWASI will be able to provide insights around waste reduction across each and every event. Additionally, CRS and QWASI will be able to support event sponsors in driving increased revenue, as well as additional data insights for sponsoring brands around fan engagement, brand awareness and conversions around promotions.
