To ensure a consistent process and to incentivize action, UNFCCC requests that Storm FC adhere to the following process:
By adopting these targets, Storm FC officially joined Race to Zero, This is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth.
The UN Climate Change initiative aims at supporting and guiding sports organizations in achieving global climate change goals.
Sports organizations can display climate leadership by engaging together in the climate neutrality journey. This is achieved by taking responsibility for their climate footprint, which in turn will incentivize climate action beyond the sports sector, and therefore help global ambition step-up in the face of the threat posed by climate change.
Storm FC has united behind a set of principles, that global leaders agreed on in the Paris cord: Sports for Climate Action
Storm FC has committed to the Sports for Climate Action working towards two overarching goals:
The UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action Initiative will provides Storm FC and other organizations with a forum where participants can pursue climate action in 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.
We have committed to adhere to a set of five principles incorporating them into strategies, policies and procedures, and mainstream them within the soccer community, thus setting the stage for a wider dissemination of the message and long-term success.
Sports for Climate Action signatories have established climate action in the agenda of the sports industry and are providing a signal for the future of sports, with global signatories joining every day. These commitments must be met with strategies to reduce GHG emissions, backed by immediate concrete actions and transparency of their progress against set targets. Storm FC has already started this process by mapping out our own GHG emissions.
UN Climate Change will work with us to determine our best course of action for achieving net zero by 2040, always guided by credible, best practice guidance.
