How the Football Italy Football Club have protected the environment in the wake of the Great Barrier Reef
Italia’s top club have protected almost half of the world’s coral reef, according to a report released today.
The Italian football association’s governing body, the FAI, commissioned a survey of all the teams in Italy’s top flight, the top-flight Serie A, to help determine which clubs could best protect the Great White Barrier Reef.
The FAI report also revealed that the Football League’s top four teams are protected from any form of pollution by almost a third.
The report says the report “reveals the extent of the FAIs commitment to safeguarding the Great Whites environment”.
The FA, however, has also faced criticism from environmental campaigners who have criticised its decision to exclude the League’s biggest rivals, Napoli and Fiorentina.
“We were asked for this report,” said FAI president Mario Cipriani.
“We were also asked to make a recommendation.
What we found was a clear-cut case for action on the reef.
We cannot allow a few clubs to take advantage of the environment to benefit themselves.””
Football is a beautiful sport, but it has to be sustainable.
We cannot allow a few clubs to take advantage of the environment to benefit themselves.”
The report has revealed that a total of 1,074 kilometres of the reef have been surveyed for the first time.
It’s estimated that the entire Great Barrier reef area would need to be surveyed for every club in Italy to protect it from pollution.
The FAI estimates that every football team has to protect a minimum of 80 per cent of the total reef area.
The survey has found that clubs have a duty of care to the Great white coral reef by not damaging or destroying its habitat, by managing the natural flow of water, by keeping it safe and by using protective measures, including planting trees.
