Sustainability Governance

We are committed to delivering an ethical FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and we’ve implemented robust controls to ensure that our governance policies are adhered to by contractors and everyone else working on delivering the tournament.

We enforce and monitor our policies and procedures, providing appropriate and timely mitigation, perform due diligence, manage, audit and provide systems to monitor and report on the effectiveness of our strategies.

When working with large, complex local and global supply chains, we have to ensure that suppliers work in line with our vision for a sustainable tournament. Our Sustainable Sourcing Code requires suppliers and licensees to agree to be monitored and evaluated on their sustainability performance.

We will publish a post-tournament sustainability report, in alignment with the Global Reporting Initiative’s Sustainability Reporting Standards and following guidance from the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights Reporting Framework. We will then fully transfer our lessons learned to FIFA, helping future FIFA World Cup™ tournaments to be as sustainable and ethical as possible.

We publish annual reports on our progress and any changes to the strategic objectives, initiatives and targets of the sustainability strategy:
