Head, Corporate Social Responsibility, VFL Wolfsburg
Successful football needs sustainability. Only those who understand football holistically and applies long-term framework conditions, will permanently end up on the winning track. Not acting sustainably means to rely on short-term gains. That cannot be the objective. In the social and environmental sense, football clubs should commit themselves to sustainable business practices.
