SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH SPORT -  Implementing the Olympic Movement's Agenda 21

Sport presents broad opportunities to promote environmental awareness, capacity building and far-reaching actions for environmental, social and economic development across society. It also can be a means of achieving peace and reconciliation as a fundamental prerequisite for sustainability principles to be shared and applied and here the Olympic Movement plays a key role.

The Olympic Movement has raised the bar for future sustainable mass spectator events, and the United Nations Environment Programme is delighted and privileged to have taken this journey with the International Olympic Committee.
Achim Steiner
Executive Director, UNEP

The IOC is committed to promoting sustainable development and respect for the environment in and through sport. Our efforts are driven by two considerations: the impact that a degraded environment can have on sport, and the effects that sport – and, in particular, the Olympic Games – can have on the environment, as well as on individuals and communities.
Jacques Rogge,
President, International Olympic Committee (IOC)
