The Olympic and Paralympic Games bid committee announces a bold sustainability strategy for 2024. The projects are aligned with the Paris Climate Accord that will make the 2024 Games the most environmentally responsible games to date.
Environmental protection and climate action strategies are at the heart of the Paris 2024 project, in line with the agreement signed by almost 200 countries during the COP21 in 2016. The eco-friendly and sustainable commitment to the Olympic Games will continue to place Paris as a global leader in environmental initiatives and at the forefront of the fight against climate change. In 2016 Paris was crowned by the WWF as a model for climate action and won the prestigious C40 Cities Award for its innovation in sustainability.
