    “To think that the destructive
   environmental effects of a global
    tournament can be 100-percent
      compensated is an illusion,”
  (Rüdiger Rosenthal, of the German
federation for environmental protection,
                 BUND,)

                                   INTRODUCTION

 One of the key elements of hosting the 2010 Soccer World Cup will be our
 ability to leave behind a sustainable environmental legacy after the final whistle
 has blown.
The “Green Goal” programme implemented by Germany in 2006 has shown that
 you cannot host an event of this magnitude without taking into account its
 profound impact on the environment.
As a City will need to put in place specific measures to mitigate the vast
 construction projects and growing number of people associated with such an
 event.
It is important that recycling and waste management measures are put in place
 during construction as well as once the first ball has been kicked.
Another key element will be the need to determine self sustainable measures for
 the Stadiums such as the use of water and energy.
Cities like Johannesburg have adopted the policy that Soccer City will utilize rain
 and “grey water” to compliment their irrigation and ablution facilities;
As well as utilizing solar panels on the roof of the stadium for additional power
 generation moving foward.
Jo’burg will also cater for the increased number of visitors and the
 accompanying wastage, and to utilize underground refuse bins to compliment
 the traditional refuse bins.                                                    7

 It incorporates measurable, sustainable development principles into
  every aspect of the event, including energy, waste, water, transport and
  hospitality.

 The action plan focuses on stadium and city-wide greening initiatives,
  biodiversity awareness raising, landscaping issues, green procurement
  processes and ratings for the hospitality industry, carbon offset targets,
  integrated waste management, the new urban park and
  communication.

 The aim is to make 2010 the greenest world cup yet, not only to offset
  the impact that the event itself will have on the environment (such as
  greenhouse gas emissions), but to set the standard for future events of
  this kind.

  Ecology, which designed the programme, just
  the flights and local travel of the 3.2 million
  tourists who will visit Germany during the
  World Cup represent around 100,000 tonnes
  of carbon dioxide, the principal gas in the
  greenhouse effect, contributing to global
  climate change. But "an honest balance of
  Green Goal can only be made after" the
  tournament, Christian Hochfeld,
