2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa

June 7th, 2010


South Africa will be the centre of the world’s attention as the country hosts the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ for the first time in Africa. This comes with numerous challenges and demands on the country’s resources.

As it has been observed in past events of this magnitude, some activities related to hosting of the FIFA World Cup will have a negative impact on the environment. The Green Goal programme is thus aimed at identifying potential impacts, avoid or minimise the impacts where possible and compensate or offset unavoidable adverse impacts

Major developments such as stadiums and transport systems can have huge negative impacts on the environment if no mitigation measures are introduced during the planning and implementation phases of projects.
