How can sport address this issue?
Sport can promote responsible consumption and production through education and awareness-raising campaigns.
The sports market is experiencing strong economic growth and all its associated activity in terms of production must comply with environmental regulations and international labour law. If sports goods and equipment are produced using sustainable development practices, the sports sector can play a positive role in achieving the goal of sustainable production.
Sport’s popularity and influence also offer opportunities to promote and share core values such as respect for the environment, sustainable lifestyles and responsible consumption habits.
