Playing for Our Planet: How Sports Can Win From Being Sustainable

This report from the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in collaboration with the Green Sports Alliance features 25 innovative solutions that have enhanced the environmental and sustainable performance of sports in Europe and beyond. Playing for Our Planet examines the link between sports and environmental issues, and stresses the impact that the sector has, as well as its unique power to raise awareness and promote sustainability to fans.

In its 25 examples from sports stakeholders (including the UEFA), the report highlights good practices in sustainable sports to emphasize the commitment made by many sports to local communities and the planet as they lead by example in the fight against pressing challenges such as climate change and ocean plastics.

The authors hope to increase the value for all members of the sports greening movement through collaborations with public institutions and sports teams and organizations. Support for the report is attributed to the European Commission and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
