Sustainability strategy for Germany’s 2024 European Football Championship bid

DFB / Öko-Institut

The German Football Association (DFB) has published a sustainability concept for its bid to host the 2024 UEFA European Football Championship (UEFA Euro 2024), which includes a 100 percent renewable electricity goal, as well as the plan to develop “ambitious climate protection targets.” “Germany is considered the world over as a pioneer in climate protection and has committed to the Paris Agreement. We therefore feel it only obvious that UEFA Euro 2024 also make a contribution to achieving the climate protection goals and takes suitable measures to keep the tournament’s climate impact to a minimum,” says the concept, which was developed in partnership with the Institute for Applied Ecology (Öko-Institut), and not requested by UEFA as part of the official bid book. UEFA will appoint the host of Euro 2024 in September 2018.
