World Athletics Sustainability Strategy
Sustainability within athletics is defined as driving the practices and behaviours of individuals and organisations developing the sport in such a way that it:
– accounts for the needs of future generations,
– provides a fair and level sporting platform based on sound ethical principles,
– actively involves interested parties and is open about decisions and activities, and
– ensures actions take a balanced approach to their social, economic and environmental impact.
Putting in place a robust sustainability strategy ensures World Athletics and its partner organisations have a framework for delivering tangible benefits across the three pillars of sustainability – environmental, social and economic.
