FIFA President shows commitment to tackling climate change at COP26

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has emphasised FIFA’s commitment to tackling climate change in the world of football in a video message to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow.

The COP26 summit is bringing parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The FIFA President said:

“Dear Executive Secretary,  Ms Patricia Espinosa Dear COP 26 President Designate, Mr Alok Sharma, Dear Prince Albert of Monaco, Dear Ms Isha Johansen Dear world leaders, Dear delegates, dear ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our plans to tackle climate change, in the world of football.

This is a critical moment.

The change in weather patterns is impacting the environment and its rich biodiversity, food security and access to fresh water as well as the health and well-being of individuals. It is affecting the lives of entire communities and even threatens the existence of low-altitude countries and entire island nations.

Football is not immune to these significant changes and around the world, grassroots, recreational, amateur and elite football are being affected.
