With the achievement of this award, the clubs have taken a pioneering position in professional sport. In cooperation with the Swiss organisation ‘sustainable///sports’, a pilot phase of the ‘sustainClub’ was developed and certificated by the independent expert organisation DEKRA. It is the first and only recognised sustainability standard and orientation framework in professional football.
“As a club, we are very happy about achieving the silver status. I’d like to thank everybody who made a contribution to that,” said Fernando Carro, chairman of the board at Bayer 04. “In the assessment of the experts, we not only recognise it as an award but also appreciate it as additional incentive to continuously improve in the area of sustainability.”
The six participating clubs have accepted the challenge in terms of sustainability in professional football and have committed themselves to achieving a better future in three areas of sustainability (economy, ecology and community). The standard contains the setting up of a CSR and sustainability management system, a sustainability analysis and the identification of concrete improvement options.
