Description The Sports for Climate Action Initiative aims to provide sports organizations with a forum where

organizations can pursue climate action in is a consistent and mutually supportive fashion by learning from each other, disseminating good practices, lessons learned, developing new tools, and collaborating on areas of mutual interest.

Objectives Sports for Climate Action works towards two overarching goals:

1.) Achieving a clear trajectory for the global sports community to combat climate change, through commitments and partnerships according to verified standards, including measuring, reducing, and reporting greenhouse gas emissions, in line with the well below 2 degree scenario enshrined in the Paris Agreement; 2.) Using sports as a unifying tool to federate and create solidarity among global citizens for climate action.
