The FEI has signed the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework this week in Lausanne (SUI).
The Framework was created by representatives of the global sports industry led by the IOC and the UN Climate Change secretariat and was launched in December 2018 during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 24) in Katowice (POL).
It aims to bring together sports organisations, teams, athletes and fans in a concerted effort to raise awareness and action to meet the goals of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement.
In doing so the FEI has committed to implementing the following five principles:
Principle 1: Undertake systematic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility;
Principle 2: Reduce overall climate impact;
Principle 3: Educate for climate action;
Principle 4: Promote sustainable and responsible consumption;
Principle 5: Advocate for climate action through communication.
