Image of post in post detailed view

Soccer's world governing body FIFA made false and misleading statements about the reduced environmental impact of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Swiss Fairness Commission, the self-regulatory body of the advertising and communications industry, made its determination after investigating five claims that Zurich-based FIFA marketed the tournament as being carbon neutral.
FIFA did said it was "fully aware" of the environmental impact its events have and has been making "substantial efforts to tackle those impacts."

                    It's unbelievable that FIFA managed to dupe the world that it had well laid out plans to cut it's carbon emissions at the world cup.

                              This is so disappointing, as a sports man I regard this as iresposible from a body that's is suppose to lead as an example in getting the records straight.

                                The majority of companies, institutions,organizations etc, need their carbon footprints data to be on limelight so that regulators and the consumers too can compare between pros and cons to each and avoid these false misinformation from occurring often.

                                  I would have been more surprised if FIFA had actually spoken the truth.
