The FIFA World Cup™ is the biggest single-event sporting competition in the world and its impact on society and the environment is indisputable.

FIFA and the LOC take this responsibility very seriously and are committed to delivering a sustainable event in Brazil in 2014.

FIFA and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Organising Committee will implement projects through their official environmental programme, Football for the Planet, to address key environmental concerns associated with the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
FIFA will continue to actively combat racism and all discrimination at both the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 and 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, including special pre-match protocols where teams will announce there is no room for racism in football.
