Sustainable development

The organisation committee has since many years been considering environmental questions and has always tried to minimise wherever possible to minimise the impact on our environment. This approach had however never been done in a formal and structured way.

At the beginning of 2020 a dedicated team was created. In order to assist us in our work in this area, we have followed the recommendations provided on the website “Manifestation verte”, which collaborates with Swiss Olympic and the Swiss confederation. It allows event organisers to list and improve in a structured manner all aspects related to the environmental impact of their event. In this way we have thoroughly analysed the 9 aspects of the Geneva Indoors and the Nations Cup: waste, promotion, social aspects, noise, food, nature, energy, transport and general aspects. This analysis has allowed us to better understand in which areas we have to make additional efforts.

Léna Voisin, in charge of environment matters, in collaboration with the organisation committee, our commitments for the 5 years to come.

The environmental report 2020-2021 (in French) details the approach, the initial analysis and the formulation of our commitments.
