|Sport and Environment|
The Centennial Olympic Congress, Congress of Unity, held in Paris in 1994, recognized the importance of the environment and sustainable development, which led to the inclusion of a paragraph in the Olympic Charter.
The UOC has acknowledged its particular responsibility in terms of promoting sustainable development, and regards the environment as the third dimension of Olympism, alongside sport and culture. This led to its decision in 1995 to create a Sport and Environment Commission.
Its role is to advise the UOC Executive Board on what policy the UOC should adopt in terms of environmental protection and support for sustainable development and, through its members, supports the UOC programmes and activities in this field.
