Now, with every goal scored by Juventus players, 200 new trees will be planted by the club generating a positive impact for our planet.

Now, every Juventus goal will mean much, much more. The action of each goal won’t just end on the pitch, as the club makes a new commitment to the environment, to make the world a better place as every goal scored by the Bianconeri will in fact represent 200 new trees planted by the club, generating a positive impact for our planet.

The football club is the first Italian football club to sign the United Nations framework convention (UNFCCC Sport for Climate Action) international treaty on the fight against climate change. It is also the first Italian football club to join the “Climate Neutral Now” initiative devised in 2015 by the United Nations, which invites everyone – companies, organisations and individuals – to be more aware of their impact on the environment and to act voluntarily to measure, reduce and offset their greenhouse gas emissions.
