THIS ISSUE'S HIGHLIGHTS
ioc Sustainability report: SHARING PROGRESS ON OUR 2020 OBJECTIVES
International Olympic Committee, 2018, 118 pages, in English.
Eighteen months after the publication of its Sustainability strategy, the IOC has released its first Sustainability Report. “The universality and global appeal of sport means that the IOC and the Olympic Movement have a special responsibility to promote a sustainable future for our world,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. Published during the IOC’s 133rd Session in Buenos Aires, this report shows substantial progress on the majority of the organisation’s sustainability objectives for 2020 across its three “spheres of responsibility”, as an organisation, as the owner of the Olympic Games and as the leader of the Olympic Movement.
Olympic Winter Games 2026: IOC working group report
International Olympic Committee, 2018, 227 pages, in English and French.
This report is a feasibility study of the potential candidatures for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games 2026. Based on this report, the IOC Session in Buenos Aires invited Calgary (Canada), Milan/Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy) and Stockholm (Sweden) to become Candidate Cities for the Olympic Winter Games 2026. This decision by the IOC Session marked the beginning of the shortened formal Candidature Stage, in line with Olympic Agenda 2020/New Norm. The candidates will submit a single Candidature File in January 2019, as part of a streamlined process which reduces the cost and complexity for the cities.
