The men’s European football championship kicks off on 11th June. Teams, fans and media from around the world will travel to this major event. But how will the large numbers of people get to the stadium or hotel? And above all: Is there a sustainable option? In episode 4, Alina and Vincenzo discuss this with Stephan Franssen, who is responsible for the UEFA sponsoring at Volkswagen, and Nico Briskorn, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) at VfL Wolfsburg. Summary:
- Volkswagen supports football with cars, often electric cars, and promotes sustainable mobility concepts such as ride-hailing.
- Avoiding climate-damaging CO2 is the objective of all collaborative projects.
- VfL Wolfsburg enjoys both sporting success and sustainability success. The team encourages travel by train and bus (for example, through combined tickets for fans) and switching to e-mobility.
