The Games Ecological Transformation Committee supports Paris 2024 with its climate and environmental strategy across the project’s entire scope (carbon impact, biodiversity, circular economy, energy, catering, digital technology, temporary construction, innovation and change management), with an advisory and monitoring role in the delivery of Paris 2024 commitments.
Chaired by Gilles Boeuf, it is made up of nine experts, joined by representatives from Paris City Council, the Ministry of Sport, the Ministerial Delegation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (DIJOP), the Ile-de-France Region, the Seine-Saint-Denis Department, Métropole du Grand Paris, the National Olympic and Paralympic Committees, and the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME), as well as a representative from the Paris 2024 Athletes’ Commission.
The Committee meets three times a year to share its views, recommendations and progress, prior to the regular meeting of the Paris 2024 Board of Directors. Gilles Boeuf as both Chairman of the Games Environmental Transformation Committee and Independent Board Member reports to the Board on the work accomplished by the committee.
