While the upcoming Olympic village is just starting to get built, Paris 2024 organizers team up with WWF France to provide eco-friendlier Summer Olympics. For instance, visitors will enjoy free transportation. Let’s have an overview of the propositions unveiled.

It’s the first partnership announced by Paris 2024. The Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games of Paris 2024 signs a partnership with NGO WWF France to promote sport events that will respect eco-friendly issues. To make of Paris 2024 the first games in line with the Paris Agreement.

A few days only after kicking off the construction work of the upcoming Olympic village in Saint-Ouen, Paris 2024 organizers are now showing their ecological commitment.

As a matter of fact, fort both players, this is the perfect occasion to create a whole range of actions and initiatives around the protection of the environment. For the NGO committed to sustainable development, the main issue of the partnership is the capacity to change minds about environmental commitment. By offering, for instance, that this commitment becomes an essential performance indicator that is almost a must. A goal that perfectly matches Paris 2024’s issue that is to host useful and innovative Games. Including a true social and environmental impact.

Free transportation for visitors

In concrete words, the partnership relies on a 2-year common work program. 5 years before the event, many propositions have been made. And the Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games president, Tony Estanguet, has let our colleagues at Le Parisien know that they could make public transportation free of charge for visitors. Good news that only involve ticket holders.

Moreover, Paris 2024 would like to reduce by 55% the emission of greenhouse gas in comparison with London 2012 with 100 devices supplying renewable energies and all sites accessible in transportation or bike. They hope sport can be a genuine way to raise awareness for future generations.

Aussi, Paris 2024 souhaite d'abord réduire de 55% les émissions de gaz à effet de serre par rapport à Londres 2012, avec 100 approvisionnement en énergies renouvelables et tous les sites accessibles en transports en commun ou vélo. Avec la certitude que le sport peut être un vrai levier de sensibilisation pour les générations futures.
