Our values

all s20 members
are committed to:

social responsibility

S20 represents sports sponsorship based on strong ethical values and principles. We value greater fairness, sustainability and social responsibility, which all play their part in preserving the integrity of sport.

We have long adhered to the principle of sustainability and we apply this to our sponsorship activities. We always look at sponsorship from economic, environmental and social perspectives.

In the same vein, we also advocate for humanist values. We condemn all types of discrimination – whether based on gender, sexuality, ethnic background, belief, age, physical or mental disability or any other factor. We do not wish to bolster our image through activities that destroy the dignity of an individual or group.

We are committed to the performance principle and to fairness. We support the fight against doping and have no intention of profiting from performances achieved in an unfair or unsportsmanlike manner.

Our members are serious about their social responsibility and support not-for-profit initiatives and projects.
