UEFA launches Sustainable Infrastructure Guidelines

UEFA has launched its new Sustainable Infrastructure Guidelines at a dedicated event at MEWA Arena in Mainz, Germany. The event featured panel discussions and experts’ presentations on sustainable football venues and facilities, encouraging knowledge transfer and sharing of best practices.

The document, which features forewords by UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin and European Commission executive vice-president Frans Timmermans, introduces the concept of infrastructure sustainability, structured around the topics of Environment Social and Governance (ESG). The guidelines cover key subjects such as purpose, location, design, conception and construction, pitch and landscaping. In addition, they provide insights into the infrastructure management phase, addressing for instance the use of embedded technology in stadium infrastructure and pitch quality, the management of event-related waste, and health and safety matters.
