SportCares contributes to suitably adapted policy-making and its case-specific implementation in the sporting context. We enable partners from sport and politics to jointly address pressing themes.
The sporting business, like all other economic fields, has seen a trend toward responsible business conduct in recent years.
In order to identify comprehensive solutions, we work with actors from politics, sport and society to transfer human rights and sustainability requirements to the sporting context.
Foundations and social responsibility initiatives have re-shaped the sporting world throughout the past decade.
With our recognised expertise in human rights law, international relations, sport policy and sporting practice, we have provided sport policy advice for the past decade.
Sport Policy in Practice
Responsible business conduct is becoming an increasingly important theme in a general business environment. In the sporting context, a broad range of social initiatives and foundations has been established as a valuable social contribution during the past decade. The UNESCO International Charter of Physical Education, Physical Activity and Sport (2015) references general human rights standards and explicitly states in its
Article 10.5 […] International labour conventions and basic human rights must be respected, in particular to avoid child labour and human trafficking.
Our founder and director, Mr Jonas Burgheim, negotiated the revision of the convention text as a UN staff. He has been a part of many related policy processes bringing together sports interests and policy requirements. We are, therefore, excellently suited to support furthering your engagement in sustainable business practices, your commitment to human rights and your establishment of an overall responsible business conduct in sport according to (inter)national standards. Our committment to enhancing partnership and co-operation as a key to this is rooted in the Charter:
Article 10.8 Public authorities and sports organizations are invited to enhance their co-operation in a spirit of mutual respect, and to minimize the risk of conflict by clearly defining their respective functions, legal rights and mutual responsibilities in physical education, physical activity and sport.
