This month’s edition of the Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking (JSFB) puts the focus on “Sports, Media and Entertainment,” understanding the broad influences they have on cultures, businesses and nations. Against the backdrop of a World Cup tournament drawing interest from fans across the globe, we look at important issues around governance in professional sports, across sectors and within regions … notably, India.
Where sports fans congregate, so do brands — and here we have examples from McDonald’s and EY on how to meld sports with sustainability and corporate growth. The Media section offers a scorecard on top players in the U.S. for disclosure on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, along with insights on media spin-offs and an insider’s view of media activity during India’s recent elections. Finally, we celebrate talent in the world of Entertainment, from the inspirational richness of jazz greats to the lights of Broadway.
