Share Article

To mark Earth Day (22 April), some 20 major sporting organisations were presented with the IOC Carbon Action Awards, recognising efforts to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The 20 organisations, which include 12 International Federations (IFs), seven National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC), won the awards on the basis of detailed data and carbon reduction plans.

We set up this award to highlight some of the important work being done within the Olympic Movement to address climate change, said Marie Sallois, IOC Sustainability Director. We hope that this work will further inspire the broader sports community to take urgent action on climate change and other sustainability challenges.
