#PARIS2024 the eco-friendly Olympics
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 Olympic Village will be a model of sustainable development through low-carbon eco-friendly buildings, the 100% use of renewable energies and the enforcement of a zero-waste policy. A fleet of zero-emission vehicles will run through the village throughout the competition.
About transports, the impact of visitors and spectators will represent more than 40% of the carbon footprint reductions thanks to a clean transport policy which includes the innovations of the RATP, official sponsor of Paris 2024.
