Greenhouse gas accounting report. FIFA World Cup 2022TM 


The FIFA World Cup™ (FWC) is an international football competition for the senior men’s national teams of FIFA’s member associations which crowns the world champions every four years. As the three organisers of this mega event, FIFA, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC (Q22), and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) are committed to protecting and conserving the environment. As part of their joint FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Sustainability Strategy, they have pledged to measure, mitigate and offset all FIFA World Cup 2022 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while advancing low-carbon solutions in Qatar and the region. As a first step, it is important to understand the emissions related to the preparation, staging and post-event activities of the FIFA World Cup. For this reason, FIFA, Q22 and the SC have conducted an analysis of the projected GHG emissions resulting from the FIFA World Cup 2022 with the support of subjectmatter experts. 
The GHG accounting and reporting procedure used for this report is based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify and manage greenhouse gas emissions. The system boundaries follow the operational-control approach. The reporting period includes tournament-related activities under the control of the organisers between April 2011 and June 2023.
