Sustainable procurement

Apply leading sustainable procurement and licensing practices in FIFA World Cup 2022™ supply chains to protect people’s rights and well-being, reduce environmental impacts and promote economic development.

The FIFA World Cup™ could not be delivered without the many hundreds of products and services provided through various suppliers, licensees and commercial affiliates, including construction services, facilities management, venue signage and dressing, merchandise, food and beverage, IT equipment, security services, cleaning and waste management services, medical services, transport services and much more.

Similarly, many of the key sustainability objectives set out in the FIFA World Cup 2022™ Sustainability Strategy could not be delivered without the support of suppliers, licensees and commercial affiliates. Taking into consideration the environmental, social, economic and ethical matters behind the procurement of products and services is a vital aspect of the tournament’s sustainability programme.
