New Guide on Sport, Environment and Sustainable Development

At the VI World Conference on Sport and Environment in Nairobi, co-hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the IOC presented its new Guide on Sport, Environment and Sustainable Development.
The ecosystem and the interrelation with various sports disciplines
The Guide was created with the view to presenting methodological and practical tools to the sports community, based on the major principles of sustainable development.
The Guide, drafted by Professor Joseph Tarradellas of the Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), examines ecosystem services and their interrelation with various sports disciplines.
Impact of sport on environment
It analyses the impact that athletes and various sports – from water sports and indoor disciplines such as gymnastics, to large outdoor matches – have on the environment, and offers practical solutions and tips to participants and spectators alike.
