Media Roundtable with Nasser Al Khater
Governance Pillar


Setting an example of good governance and ethical business practices

We take responsibility for addressing the impacts of the FIFA World Cup 2022™ from our own activities as well as those linked to our business relationships and value chains. We establish a culture of compliance based on legal requirements and organisational policies, and demonstrate transparency and accountability to our stakeholders in relation to our sustainability decision-making and performance.

The three material sustainability topics that were identified for this governance pillar are as follows:

Transparency and accountability

We follow the guidance of international standards for the FIFA World Cup 2022™ and are seeking certification to ISO 20121, the sustainability management system standard for events.
