In the latest in our MyStory video series, Olympic gold medalist Hannah Mills tells us why investors can be as influential as sports stars when it comes to solving the plastic crisis.
Winning gold at the Rio Olympics was a huge achievement for Hannah Mills, but her moment on the podium was tainted by the crisis she had seen unfolding in the oceans around her. Sailing competitively all over the world, Hannah had seen the extent of the plastic problem first hand. She couldn't sit and do nothing. Instead she used her influence as an athlete to try and inspire change.
Sport reaches people all over the world, so she used this platform to launch the Big Plastic Pledge; a campaign encouraging sports stars and fans to pledge to stop using single-use plastics. In our latest MyStory video she explains that investors have the power to inspire change in the same way as athletes. And she's calling on all investors to use this power to influence the sustainability practices of the companies they invest in. Watch the full video here.
