FIFA needs to get greener

This post in may from Christian outlined the efforts made in Germany to make World Cup 2006 more environment friendly.
The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and German organisers said on Friday that the battery of energy-saving measures and other steps more than compensated for the greenhouse gases generated by the World Cup, even down to the teams’ flights to and from Germany.That’s a bit of good news for a change isn’t it ?
The “Green Goal” project wiped off 17,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from transport during the event, cut electricity emissions by one-third to 2.490 tonnes, and about 2,000 tonnes through other steps.
However the UNEP is also saying that more still needs to be done if International Football is to catch up with the Olympics in terms of environment protection etc.Newsreport here.
