"We ask for all other sports organizations to follow this example," said Bach. As an intermediate goal, the IOC has set emission reduction by 30 percent by 2024. The Rings Association as an organization is already climate-neutral after its own, and wants to become a climate positive until 2024.

In March, the IOC had taken the decision that the Olympics should also be climate-friendly. Paris 2024 should be the first climate-neutral games. For the upcoming winter games in Beijing (4 to 20 February 2022), all competition sites should be supplied to 100 percent with renewable energy.
