Climate change is affecting us all.
The Earth’s climate is changing due to human activity. Football is not immune to these significant changes. We all need to reduce the emissions that enter the atmosphere.
FIFA, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC and Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy have committed to reducing and offsetting all carbon emissions related to the FIFA World Cup™ 2022. The climate crisis is a global one. All of us can measure, reduce and offset carbon emissions and play our part to make a difference. You can fly less often, take public transport and cycle more. You can eat less meat and eat more plants. You can purchase products locally, switch to green energy... and much more. There are many great projects and campaigns around the world that will help you reduce your footprint. Search your local climate action organisation and learn how to reduce your emissions and look to build a brighter, more sustainable future for generations to come.
