In the UK, football is the highest profile and most popular sport; Football is now very much big business with huge investment from wealthy individuals and firms mostly with one thing in mind, profit. As well as having significant economic impacts, the sport has many social and environmental sustainability impacts. Sport is not immune to the contemporary responsibilities of protecting the natural environment and contributing positively to society.
This talk presents an overview of the results of a BRASS project investigating how football clubs address issues of social and environmental sustainability. Key questions are - what key barriers do clubs face in terms of addressing social and environmental sustainability and do football clubs have a strategic approach to sustainability?
