Improving environmental governance in sports organisations
Governance is a crucial leverage for steering football organizations (NFAs, football clubs and stadium owners) towards environmental sustainability by strategically defining environmental improvement objectives and by allocating human and financial resources to achieve them. Therefore, greening football requires improving existing governance mechanisms as well as introducing new self-regulatory tools within existing governance frameworks.
Organisational Environmental Governance
Within this part of the project, GOALS focuses on the improvement of environmental governance of participating National Football Associations (NFAs). Governance helps communicating goals and achievements to external stakeholders by means of coherent reporting initiatives and by maintaining a dialogue between stakeholders and the organization.
Operational Environmental Governance
Involving football clubs, the main focus will be on environmental footprint. A calculator will be developed, using 14 impact categories. the calculator needs to provide support not only in the calculation of the footprint but also in the assessment of possible environmental improvement actions to be implemented by clubs.
Theories and ideas do not suffice to lower the environmental footprint of football clubs. Therefore the project scope entails tangible, SMART, tooling like a carbon footpring calculator to give insight into the current realisations and the road ahead.
