UEFA Social Responsibility & Sustainability: One-year-to-go report 2015
This report is structured to reflect the UEFA EURO 2016 organisational model, especially with regard to the tournament’s social responsibility and sustainability strategy. After an introduction to the social responsibility framework, material issues and priorities for UEFA EURO 2016 and the major environmental, economic and social impacts of the tournament are presented in four main sections:
- The governance section focuses on social responsibility and sustainability projects and governance, integrity enforcement and the sourcing of products and services
- The setting the stage section details what has been done for UEFA EURO 2016, in terms of stadium construction and renovation, accessibility, waste management and water and energy consumption
- The tournament section relates to public transport and mobility, fan engagement and the general atmosphere during the event, which will be bolstered by fan embassies, match monitoring and a clear safety and security strategy inside and outside the stadiums
- The Behind the scenes section presents the human resources needed to make the whole event possible and the social and economic impacts it will leave behind, not least in terms of social diversity and integration
This one-year-to-go report will be followed by a post-event report in autumn 2016. The latter will be compliant with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and will present the performance indicators, achievements and limitations of the UEFA EURO 2016 sustainability and social responsibility strategy.
