The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday entered into an agreement with the UN Environment to promote ‘green’ Cricket in India. BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary signed a letter of intent at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai in presence of Executive Director of UN Environment Erik Solheim.
The BCCI in a statement said that the partnership will help to spread greater awareness about key environmental challenges facing the country and highlight alternate and more sustainable solutions.
The BCCI will endeavor to reduce its environmental impact by greening operations and engaging cricketers and fans in green initiatives.
The partnership will also focus on phasing out single-use plastic across stadiums in the country.
