New IOC guide fosters Sustainability Management in Sports

A new guide by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) intends to help organisations within the Olympic Movement and the wider sports sector implement sustainability more securely, addressing issues such as climate change and biodiversity loss, economic inequality and social injustice.

The guidelines – called “Sustainability Management in Sports” – will help National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and International Federations (IFs) integrate sustainability into their operations and events. Part of the IOC’s “Sustainability Essentials” series, the guidelines respond to the recommendations of Olympic Agenda 2020 – the strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement – which pledges to develop common methodologies and tools to help embed sustainability across all Olympic Movement operations.
