The WFC 2024 has high ambitions when it comes to sustainability, at all levels – socially, environmentally, and economically. We are working towards making the championships a “Certified Sustainable Event”. This means that we will quality-assure the work, not only linked to environmental/ecological impact but also in relation to the other dimensions of sustainability, i.e. social and economic. Read more about the sustainability work of WFC 2024 in our Sustainability Policy.
As a part of our sustainability work, the WFC 2024 participates in the GAMES project. This is an EU project which, among other things, aims to raise awareness and increase the adoption of climate change mitigation practices by key sports actors. Read more about our participation in the GAMES project.
In addition, there is much you as a visitor can do to contribute to the sustainability of the event – for instance:
- Travel by public transport: Did you know that both Malmö Arena and the Baltic hall have excellent locations for traveling by public transport? Malmö Arena is located right outside of Hyllie Station, which is only two stops from Malmö Central Station, while the Baltic hall instead is a short bus ride away from the central station. There are also good opportunities to travel to Malmö by public transport from several parts of Sweden and Europe – the direct trains from Stockholm or Gothenburg to Malmö have several departures every day, and from Copenhagen, Malmö Arena is less than 30 minutes away by train!
- If you stay overnight in Malmö, choose an environmentally friendly hotel: Malmö is Sweden’s third largest city, so it does perhaps not come as a surprise that the number of hotels to choose between are many. Choose an environmentally friendly accommodation during your stay! You can find these by, for instance, looking for environmentally certified or eco-labeled hotels.
- Sort your waste in the arena in the designated waste sorting bins: It should be easy to sort your waste – therefore, you’ll find a variety of sorting bins for different types of waste in the arenas. Do the environment a favor and sort your waste in the right place!
Thank you for your participation in creating a more sustainable event!
