The professional football club at the top of the Italian football league signed up to the LIFE TACKLE project and teamed up with the Sustainability Management laboratory at the Institute of Management of Sant’Anna School of Advanced studies for measuring its direct and indirect environmental impacts in terms of carbon emissions.
The calculation of greenhouse gas emissions of the sports sector is a core activity of the LIFE TACKLE project and the project coordinator, Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, is now assisting Juventus in quantifying its Scope 3 emissions, which refer to team travel (for the first team and youth academy) and fan mobility for all home games.
Juventus F.C. is one of the first football clubs that embraced the challenge of sustainability, making the fight against climate change a key part of its off-pitch activities. Through this ambitious project, the club is acquiring a more accurate overview of its direct and indirect impacts and this will help shape future strategies aimed at reducing its carbon footprint. It is surely a great achievement for the LIFE TACKLE project to have positively influenced such an important and high-level football club.
