FIFA joins the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework
The UN Climate Change Secretariat launched the new Sports for Climate Action Framework that was developed with the sports sector. The aim of the new framework is to gather sports organisations, teams, athletes, and fans in a concerted effort to raise awareness and action to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement for climate protection.
“Our commitment to protecting our climate remains unwavering. We recognise the critical need for everyone to help implement the Paris Agreement and accelerate the change needed to reach greenhouse gas emission neutrality in the second half of the twenty-first century. FIFA welcomes the UN’s development of the Sports for Climate Action Framework, and I am pleased to confirm that FIFA will support the vision outlined in the new framework”, said FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura.
