The World Floorball Championships 2014 is a crowd pleaser, as well as eco-conscious. Of course.
– It goes without saying that the environment is of great importance to us, says Magnus Nilsson, director of the WFC 2014.
The big opening ceremony is on Friday and the matches start on Saturday. Germany plays against Finland on Saturday the 6th at 12.30 in Scandinavium and after the first period, the organizers of the WFC 2014 will be awarded a certificate, which states that the event is an eco-conscious championship.
This means that people involved with the WFC 2014 actively have worked, and will work, hard to reduce the event’s impact on the environment before, during and after the championship. For example, trips have been planned carefully, all waste has been sorted and as much materials as possible have been recycled.
– We want to highlight an important issue to a large number of people from different parts of the world and maybe even manage to influence the audience, participants and partners to, in their own way, contribute to a more sustainable world, says Sofie Engel, environmental manager of the WFC2014 and continues:
– This is the first time ever a floorball event is credited with a certificate for being eco-conscious, and not just in Sweden but in the world. As the biggest sport event in Sweden 2014, we are proud to continue a green tradition here in Gothenburg. Several of the bigger events that have taken place here in the city during previous years have focused on the environment so naturally we want to do the same.
