“Sustainability and environmental protection are systematically anchored in our DNA. For more than ten years, we have been committed to climate protection in the area of CSR and have set ourselves ambitious goals.”
Nico Briskorn has been working as a sustainability expert at VfL Wolfsburg for more than 10 years. Under his leadership, VfL Wolfsburg became the world’s first football club to publish a GRI-certified sustainability report in 2012. The topics range from climate protection and diversity management to child protection and human rights. In various committees and working groups at national and international level, Nico Briskorn contributes his expertise to sustainable football and plays a key role in the development and establishment of industry standards. For example, clubs in the Bundesliga and 2nd Bundesliga went through the “Sustainclub” label together with VfL Wolfsburg in 2020, the first sustainability standard specifically for football. His team includes five employees. Briskorn graduated in 2004 with a degree in sports science.
