Paris 2024: The first climate positive Olympics

Georgina Grenon, the Games’ director of environmental excellence, explains how Paris 2024’s legacy is built around the low-carbon transition

Twelve years after London 2012, the Summer Olympic Games will be back in Europe – Paris to be precise. And while the London Games set the tone with environmental legacy, particularly when it comes to regeneration and event management, the 2024 edition aims to go a step further by accelerating the low-carbon transition. 

In the latest edition of the SportWorks Sustainability Leadership Series talks, Georgina Grenon, director of environmental excellence for Paris 2024, explains how she is coordinating several complex pieces to bring the vision to fruition.

Grenon discusses carbon accounting, sustainable procurement and facilitating sustainability education for Paris 2024 staff during this session. Watch the full talk here:

Throughout the SportWorks Sustainability Leadership Series, we’ll be focusing on sustainability at major events, mitigating climate risk for sports organisations, gamifying sustainability, creating a sustainability strategy, and incorporating sustainable innovation.
