SPORTS FOR CLIMATE

Building a unique bond between people and their environment via sports

The world faces significant challenges across a wide spectrum of economic, social and environmental matters.

OBJECTIVES

• To help sports organisations reduce emissions caused by their operations.
• Leverage the worldwide popularity of sport to engage millions of fans in the effort to join the climate movement and take action.
• Raise awareness about climate change in communities across the world through sports.
• Mitigate the negative impact of climate change on sport and local communities.
• Contribute to achieving a net-zero emissions world by 2050, as agreed by global leaders in December 2015 at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in Paris.
