Sustainability and legacy of venues :

- Paris 2024 wants to reduce its carbon footprint  to half that of the Olympic Games in London by promoting low carbon solutions in each of the major venues (e.g sustainable catering, soft mobility etc) 
- Paris 2024 wants to mobilise 100% of its ecosystem by taking advantage of the Games to speed up its ecological transition in sport (e.g commitments by commercial partners and suppliers, increased awareness of partners, general public etc) 


- 95% of existing (Stade de France, Bercy Arena, Roland-Garros etc) and temporary infrastructures (Eiffel Tower Stadium, Invalides, La Concorde etc)
- 100% of temporary equipment to be re-used or recycled : concrete has been designed to be combined with other ingredients so it can be more sustainable and recycled 
- 80% of public investment is in the Seine-Saint-Denis region
- 100 % of Olympics facilities will be left as a legacy for inhabitants after 2024
- 20 local public sports facilities have been renovated in the Ile-de-France region


Paris 2024 wants to create venues that are both sustainable and serve as models in keeping with the image of the Olympics : 
- The venues will be models in terms of their construction as they will also involve the professional involvement of small and medium-sized businesses.
- The venues will be models in terms of their energy consumption as the energy used will come from renewable or reclaimed energy sources.
- The venues are sustainable as their legacy will see all sports facilities open to the general public as sports venues accessible to all.

An example of such a venue is the Olympic aquatic centre which will host the water polo, diving and artistic swimming events:
- close to 90% of its energy consumption will come from renewable and reclaimed energy sources, in particular the photovoltaic solar farm installed on its roof
- it will be the only aquatics venue in France able to host competitions in every swimming discipline.


How will the Olympic and Paralympic village become a shining example of Paris 2024’s legacy strategy?

The village is a 148,200m² eco-district 7km from the centre of Paris. This village has been built to last – after the Games, 2,800 legacy homes, including 2,000 family homes and 800 residential units will be reconverted and handed over to residents of the Seine-Saint-Denis region.
During the 3-week gap between the Olympics and Paralympics, the village will be fully adapted for full accessibility. This will also be a key part of the post-Games legacy.
In addition, 1,300​ legacy homes will be created as part of the media village.


Catering during the Olympic Games:

13 million meals will be served during the Olympics​:
- Twice as much vegetarian food: 60% vegetarian options for spectators​
- 100% certified food: a target of 100% certified food, including 80% of products sourced from within France, 25% of which within 250km of venues and 30% organic​
- Reduce by 50% the use of single-use plastic​
- Reduce waste and ensure that 100% of non-eaten food will be used for compost or methanisation
