Sport, Sustainability and Community Engagement: A Focus on the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games

Sport, Sustainability and Community Engagement

Pam AM TorontoSport has a magical ability to unite millions of people across different economic, social, geographic and political lines. You can likely think of several great sporting moments that you will never forget. With those memories in mind, one begins to appreciate the enormous responsibility for the organizers of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games. They have an opportunity to do something special that will impact entire communities for generations to come. We want to know how they’re doing it.

On April 1st TSSS will host a panel of experts including Ann Duffy who was the Corporate Sustainability Officer to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and who continues to provide CSR guidance to the IOC and FIFA. Our panel will explore the power of sport to reach people and communities like nothing else can. Topics to be discussed include: Community Engagement, Sustainable Purchasing, Importance of a Clear Vision, Diversity and Inclusion, Branding and Leaving a Legacy.

Ann Duffy, Founder at The Ann Duffy Group Inc.

TSSS: Briefly describe the evolution of your journey in the realm of sustainability.  

Ann Duffy: My career has oscillated between running my own consulting practice (The Ann Duffy Group Inc.) and being a leader within a company (VP Sustainable Development, CH2M HILL Canada; Corporate Sustainability Officer, Vancouver 2010). In both cases, the evolution of sustainability in my work has involved finessing the development and engagement of integrated strategies, partnerships, environmental stewardship, social inclusion and responsibility, economic development and good governance. I see it as two sides of a coin – the art (connecting to our passions, values and stakeholders) and the science (bringing technical and business savvy to strategies, operations and programs).
