World OCR is committed to a healthy planet and the global environment. We use the international standard ISO 20121 Event Sustainability Management System, to ensure the sustainability of events in the World OCR system. This standard was developed for use at the 2012 London Olympic Games and is the global benchmark for sustainable events.
ISO 20121 is a management system standard that has been designed to help organisations in the events industry improve the sustainability of their event related activities, products and services. ISO 20121 helps World OCR race producers and directors:
The United Nations Sports for Climate Action works towards two overarching goals:
World OCR is a signatory on the climate action for sport movement, which relies on the Sports for Climate Action Framework. This initiative aims at supporting and guiding sports actors in achieving global climate change goals.
We display climate leadership by engaging together in the climate neutrality journey. They is achieve by taking responsibility for our climate footprint, which incentivises climate action beyond our events and member organisations, and helps all of us step-up in the face of the threat posed by climate change.
Uniting behind a set of principles with other sports organisations and their communities, World OCR collaborates to position OCR on the path of the low carbon economy that global leaders agreed on in Paris: Sports for Climate Action
UN Climate Change welcomes the leadership of the International Olympic Committee in contributing to key areas of action within this movement. World OCR invites all national governing bodies, event producers, sport federations, leagues and clubs, to join and jointly develop the climate action agenda in OCR, by leading and supporting working groups and by bringing expertise, tools and best practices into this framework.
