The Federation hopes to achieve its goals by 2030 across areas spanning human rights to the environment. 

The sustainability plan was created in collaboration with consultancy Lundquist, and incorporates 11 areas of action, as outlined by European football’s governing body, UEFA. 

Across human rights, the FIGC is promoting anti-racism, the protection of minors and young people, equality and inclusion, football for all abilities, health and wellbeing, support for refugees, and integrating human rights principles into internal policies. 

“For the role and impact it has in Italian civil society, football has a responsibility that goes beyond the game." FIGC President Gabriele Gravina

In the environmental space, the FIGC is promoting a circular economy, addressing the climate emergency, the sustainability of events and the sustainability of infrastructure.

“We make an important commitment to our stakeholders and the new generations,” said FIGC President Gabriele Gravina. “We have long embarked on a conscious process that affects several areas and today, thanks also to the input from UEFA, we intend to relaunch our integral development action, defining it with even clearer and more organised objectives and methodologies.

“For the role and impact it has in Italian civil society, football has a responsibility that goes beyond the game and the FIGC wants to be a point of reference to ensure the competitiveness of the football system and inspire all its actors. We will do this by opening up even more to the outside world, contaminating ourselves with other realities and adopting measurable indicators, with a view to reporting and full transparency.”
