On this year’s United Nations’ World Environment Day, International Sports Federations (IFs) demonstrated their commitment to protecting biodiversity and promoting awareness for pressing environmental issues.

The focus of this year’s day was the celebration of biodiversity, which is vital for our planet’s ecosystems, and many IFs took the opportunity to illustrate their ongoing work in furthering sustainable sport.

“Sport has an unparalleled platform to raise awareness amongst a vast community, so it is only right that sport honours World Environment Day,” GAISF President Raffaele Chiulli said. “To see the tremendous progress our Members have made towards sustainable sport makes me immensely proud, and I know that, united, we can make a lasting and positive impact on protecting our planet’s biodiversity.”
