Unfortunately, the 2010 World Cup produced about 2,753,250 tons of Co2 and equivalent gases. about 8 times as much as the previous World Cup in Germany. This was mostly due to the travel necessary to get to South Africa, which made up about 67.4% of emissions. South Africa did try to be more green, powering two of its stadiums with solar power and constructing them so they could be used for several different uses in the future. One of the stadiums also had a rainwater collection system.
If the next World Cup, happening in Brazil in 2014, wants to be more efficient, it could promote such things as water and energy conservation, recycling and sustainable building practices.
