BBC Sport has signed up to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Sports for Climate Action Framework.
“Like the rest of the industry, we have a duty to ensure we are doing everything we can to keep our environmental impacts to a minimum. Signing up to the UNFCCC demonstrates the importance we attach to strengthening the great work we have already done in this area.” – Barbara Slater, Director of BBC Sport
BBC Sport has become the 157th signatory and the second media organisation to join the framework that aims to bring together representatives from across the global sports community to drive change by setting clear targets and standards in line with the Paris Agreement, as well as harnessing the power of sport to inspire and influence change.
Sports teams, organisations, governing bodies and broadcasters around the world are signatories including the IOC, FIFA, UEFA, FA, BOA and The All England Lawn Tennis Club.
“I am delighted to welcome BBC Sport in the Sports for Climate Action family. Prominent sports broadcasting companies, such as BBC Sport, have a tremendous reach and impact in terms of informing viewers and influencing sports actors. We look forward to their contribution as they walk the talk on climate and use their broadcast power to influence awareness, attitudes and knowledge of climate change.” – Niclas Svenningsen, manager for Global Climate Action at the UNFCCC
