FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, delivered a video recording raising a “Green Card for the Planet” in commemoration of World Environment Day held annually on June 5. The initiative is intended to boost awareness about environmental protection ahead of the 2022 World Cup hosted in Qatar.
In his video message, Infantino stated: “As FIFA President, and today, on World Environment Day, I’m asking everyone who loves football and who cares about the environment to raise FIFA’s Green Card for the Planet.”
He also added: “FIFA is playing its part, with our aim to make the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 carbon neutral. So, I call on all of you to raise the FIFA Green Card for the Planet and to record a short message telling us what you will do to preserve the environment and save our world and post this message on social media. Let’s engage on this!”
