GORD & other Sports Representatives at the UN Pitch for Climate Action

Nov 08,2017

GORD has participated at a meeting held in Bonn on 30-31 October 2017, in which sport representatives agreed to work with UN Climate Change to help achieve the key goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Commenting on the dialogue, Dr. Yousef Alhorr indicated that ”We are gathering here to share ideas and exchange thoughts on how to further materialize the Paris Agreement noble mission by advancing climate actions in such an improtant sector which has the power to greatly influence behaviour and attitudes of the young generation in specific and society at large.” 

Leading sports organizations are stepping up climate action and working with the UN to make sports more sustainable. At a meeting in Bonn this week, sport representatives agreed to work with UN Climate Change to help achieve the key goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, which is to limit the global average temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius, and to build greater resilience to climate change. Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) said: “Sport is about achieving ones best. We need to harness this passion to bring about change.” She also highlighted the fact that sports engages a broad cross-section of society and that sportspeople and sports organizations have significant public and community trust. UN Climate Change will work with the sports sector on a number of issues, including on measuring and reducing the direct impacts of sports events and other activities in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The organizations working with UN Climate Change on the greater sustainability of sports are: French Ministry of Cities and Sport, Formula E, Philadelphia Eagles, International Labour Organisation, BBC, Earth2Ocean, Green Sports Alliance (USA and Japan), Seattle University, Roland Garros, Golf Environment Organisation, World Rugby, Council for Responsible Sport, UEFA, The Football Association, FIA, San Francisco 49ers, NHL, Forest Green Rovers, DFB Bundesliga, VF Corporation, FIFA, GORD, WWF, Burston Marsteller, Change the Game, J. League Marketing Inc., the Climate Coalition and Papua New Guinea Office of Climate Change and Development.
