What you should know
Climate change can result in unsafe working conditions
The increasingly regularity of extreme weather conditions (both hot and cold) is one of the many examples of how climate change has an impact on players' working conditions. Players are also particularly at risk from air pollution while engaging in high performance exercise.
We need measures in place to protect players
This includes offering water breaks, and awareness of injuries that can be sustained as a results of extreme weather, such as hypothermia and frostbite.
Football should be a force for good
Travel demands in international football have increased and so has the need for the industry to acknowledge its carbon footprint. As well as protecting players, football has a social responsibility to protect the planet, and the environment should be considered on all levels – including transport, suppliers, and venue management.
