Playing for Our Planet – UEFA & WWF 2018

‘Playing for Our Planet’ was published by UEFA and its associated social responsibility partner World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in 2018. It shows how sport can contribute to sustainability and tackle climate change at all levels, form the grassroots to the elite.

The report highlights good practices and examines the link between sports and environmental issues. Furthermore, it stresses the impact that the sector has, as well as its unique power to raise awareness and promote sustainability to fans in Europe and beyond. ‘Playing for Our Planet’ features 25 examples of sports stakeholders. One of the chapters highlights the environmental initiatives of the VfL Wolfsburg.

Alongside European stakeholders, the report also covers their counterparts in North America to emphasise the link between global and local concerns. Backing for the report has come from the European Commission and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – showing that united cooperation between public institutions and the sports movement is key in efforts to protect the planet.
