A new report by campaigners Badvertising and New Weather Sweden has exposed over 100 events, organisations and athletes in the winter sports world, as being sponsored by planet-polluting companies including fossil fuel producers, car manufacturers and airlines.
Even the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS), is sponsored by Audi, who manufacture almost 90 percent petrol and diesel cars.
Andrew Simms, Badvertising, remarks, “Sport ended tobacco sponsorship over health concerns, it needs to do the same with major polluters, not just to protect athletes, the planet and the public, but the future of sport.”
After a generally warmer and shorter winter in Europe, we say amen to that.
