Episode 9: Kunal Merchant on Intersection of Sports & Climate Justice


Environmental justice, the disproportionate exposure of communities of color and the poor to the harmful impacts of pollution, had not gotten much oxygen in the sports world, until a groundbreaking panel discussion on the topic at the 2019 Green Sports Alliance Summit in Philadelphia. Kunal Merchant, an expert on environmental justice and the head of Lotus Advisory, a consulting firm that helps clients — including sports teams and venues — pursue transformative change, moderated.

Today, we pick up this very important conversation with Kunal in Episode 9 of GreenSportsPod. He pushes the sports industry — and the Green-Sports niche within it — to use its influence to go much harder and deeper on environmental justice.
