GOALS is a project funded by EU Commission through the ERASMUS+ Sport Programme, that aims at improving the environmental governance in football organizations.
The project is aimed primarily at women and youth football teams with the aim of improving the environmental impact of clubs and football matches. GOALS aims to increase their environmental awareness and promote the adoption of more environmentally friendly behaviors. The project also intends to strengthen cooperation between institutions and sport organizations boosting the adoption and the implementation of environmental governance actions.
To these ends, GOALS will develop organizational tools for the three National Football Associations involved - Romanian, Portuguese and Kosovar - to improve their environmental governance. The project also focuses on operational governance through the involvement of at least 9 grassroots football clubs, 3 for each of the countries involved. In addition to the calculation of the environmental footprint of the clubs participating in the project, GOALS will provide an intuitive online tool to support football organizations in the calculation of their Environmental Footprint applying the European methodology on footprint (Recommendation 2013/179 / EU).
The project is coordinated by Sant’ Anna School of Advanced Studies, that has extensive experience in environmental management activities and environmental footprint assessment.
The project Consortium includes, in addition to the three participating Federations, Real Betis Balompié - the professional team of the Spanish Lega - and the international association ESSMA (European Stadium & Safety Management Association). This network comprises over 350 members that will contribute through communication, networking and replication activities, dissemination of project outputs and stakeholders’ engagement from the European world of football. Moreover, GOALS is supported by UEFA and by the Football Association of Ireland.
Project partners: Portugal Football Federation (FPF)Real Betis Balompié Foundation, Romanian Football Federation (FRF), Football Federation of Kosovo (FFK), European Stadium & Safety Management Association (ESSMA)
Project duration: 01.01.2021 to 30.06.2023
The International Biathlon Union (IBU) has introduced the IBU’s Sustainability Strategy with a bold plan to balance the social, economic and environmental impact of the sport of biathlon. The Strategy follows a profound process which began following the approval of the new IBU Constitution and strategic plan called “Target 26” in October 2019.
The new strategy triggered a process for future proofing and progressing the sport recognising sustainability as a key priority in Target 26 and climate change as direct and urgent threat to the sport of Biathlon.
In the interest of maximising stakeholder buy-in through the process, IBU involved all key stakeholders in this strategic process including the National Federations (NFs), staff, athletes, organising committees, commercial partners, media, and fans. This is also in line with ISO 20121 standard’s core requirements for sustainable management, which the IBU aspires to follow.
