YOG – Lausanne 2020; Report: ‘The carbon footprint of the 2020 Winter Youth Olympics’

The Lausanne 2020 Organizing Committee partnered with Quantis to conduct a carbon footprint assessment of the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games. It was the first such assessment to follow the Carbon Footprint Methodology Guidance of the IOC. The aim of the assessment was to understand the impact and effectiveness of the organizational and policy measures taken and to leave a legacy for future Organizing Committees in developing their sustainability action plans to measure and minimise their events’ greenhouse gas emissions.

Beijing 2022; Sustainability Plan (May 2020)

Beijing Organising Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (Beijing 2022) published the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Sustainability Plan (hereinafter referred to as Sustainability Plan) on 15 May. This plan was developed jointly by the People’s Government of Beijing Municipality, the People’s Government of Hebei Province, and the Beijing 2022. The plan serves as a programmatic document guiding the sustainability work of the Beijing 2022 Games and is being implemented throughout the entire process of the Games.

The sustainability plan reflects the Beijing 2022 mission of being “green, inclusive, open and clean”, and the reforms introduced through Olympic Agenda 2020——the strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement. It is also aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


The ‘Beijing 2022 Sustainability Plan’ can be downloaded from the Beijing 2022 website.
