In achieving its mission of “building a better future”, FIFA aims to lead by example and channel the power of football and the influence of the organisation on the game and its stakeholders towards making positive impacts on society and the environment. The strategy to achieve these goals is divided up into five core areas.
Our people: Our member associations and team members are our most valuable assets. Providing a safe and healthy working environment for all of our people is a basic responsibility, and is fundamental to the success of FIFA.
Our game: Football is actively played by millions around the world and watched by billions. Ensuring that the game of football reflects the highest values of society is essential to FIFA. Through its regulations and actions on and off the pitch, FIFA fights negative influences on the game and ensures that the fundamental values are respected.
Our events: At the core of FIFA’s aim to develop the game and touch the world are the FIFA tournaments organised at regular intervals around the world. Naturally, these competitions are an essential part of FIFA’s corporate social responsibility strategy as they offer exceptional platforms to raise awareness, highlight particular issues and implement projects and campaigns on the ground.
Our society: Football has become a vital instrument for hundreds of programmes run by non-governmental and community-based organisations all around the world. These programmes are providing children and young people with valuable tools that make a difference to their lives. In support of these efforts, FIFA provides resources and engages with its member associations, commercial affiliates, development agencies and others to bring further resources and know-how to the grassroots level.
Our planet: FIFA is dedicated to taking its environmental responsibility seriously. Issues such as global warming, environmental conservation and sustainable management are a concern for FIFA, not only in regard to FIFA World Cups™, but also in relation to FIFA as an organisation. That is why FIFA has been engaging with its stakeholders and other institutions to find sensible ways of addressing environmental issues and mitigate the negative environmental impacts linked to its activities.
