Sustainability and Legacy report

January 26th, 2022

After Tokyo 2020, it is time for Paris 2024 to enter the scene with a unique ambition: Olympic and Paralympic Games in tune with society and its realities. The XXXIII Olympiad of the modern era will be one of renewal with Games at the service of sport for all, territories and future generations.

To achieve this, the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee has been working closely with its ecosystem and its sponsors since 2017. Three years before the Games, a look back on the first achievements of the project, and those to come.

Paris 2024 Games will be ambitious and spectacular and combine economic, social and environmental responsibility. Faced with the societal challenges of the 21st century, Paris 2024 has put questions of legacy and sustainability at the heart of its project since the bid phase, to inspire new standards: Games at the service of the territories, which constitute opportunities for local economics, a carbon footprint shared by two compared to previous editions, in line with the principles of circular economy… Paris 2024 offers a new organizational model for Games open to all, leaving a lasting mark on our society and that will put more sport in the life of the French.

For this strategy to be a successful and lasting beyond 2024, Paris 2024 does not act alone. It is by bringing together all of those involved in the Games that lasting change is possible: members of the sports movement, NGOs, the economic fabric, public institutions and local authorities contribute on a daily basis to building a legacy for after 2024.

In 2021, Paris 2024 is offering the first of its interim reports aimed at measuring the progress and impact of the projects and actions undertaken.
