ISPO Sustainability Interviews 2018
Social and environmental issues are no longer marginal to the long-term success of any sport and outdoor business. But moving from insight to action is not always easy. That is why we asked representatives from leading sport and outdoor companies and industry organisations why environmental and social sustainability is no longer a luxury and how they integrate these issues into their daily work. More specifically, we asked them:
1. What is the business case for sustainability? Why does their company do it?
2. Can they give one example illustrating how their company is integrating sustainability into their business concretely?
3. What advice can they give company leaders who want to integrate sustainability into their core business?
4. What needs to happen in the future to accelerate sustainability performance in the sport and outdoor industry?
