RESPONSIBALL Ranking 2018
The eighth annual RESPONSIBALL Ranking report looks at the sustainability of 21 men’s top professional football leagues from around the world through the 2017/18 season.
As in past editions, the report again looks at three key topics: Governance, Community and Environment. These three pillars encapsulate the areas of sustainability most important to the success of a football club. Through good governance, community outreach and awareness, and environmental consideration, clubs may improve their financial performance while also contributing to sustainable development in society.
This year’s ranking saw many familiar names at the top of the list, including Denmark and England, two countries which have consistently proven that sustainable actions are both feasible and profitable.
A new leader topped the chart this year. The United States continued its upward trajectory from fifth in last year’s ranking, finding its place at the top of each of the three categories and ultimately as the highest ranked football league this year.
