Cape Town Moves Ahead with Green Plans

Cape Towne is moving along with the implementation of its 2010 Green Goal action plan -- a series of projects aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the World Cup.

Consisting of 43 projects with specific targets, the aim is to leave a positive environmental legacy after the event. The World Cup's carbon footprint is expected to be bigger than any other major sporting event.

"The carbon footprint is going to be much higher than the previous world cup in Germany for various reasons, including the long distance flights that people from other countries need to take to South Africa," said Green Goal manager Lorraine Gerrans.
