Episode #71 – Rikke Rønholt Albertsen explores why organisations struggle to get to grips with sustainability, and how sport can align closer to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
About a year ago, Kenneth P. Pucker’s article in Harvard Business Review suggested that the role of sustainability report was potentially being oversold, and that even though the number of companies disclosing and producing such documents had increased significantly over the last decade, so had carbon emissions.
In this week’s podcasts, in the company of Rikke Rønholt Albertsen, the co-founder of the Global Goals World Cup and former elite athlete, we explore this gap between sustainability objectives and outputs and actual concrete action and outcomes.
Rønholt Albertsen also talks about the need for sport to align more closely with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and how she is working with the Danish Olympic Committee to increase its focus on sustainability and inclusion.
