ROLAND-GARROS – A "RESPONSIBLE" TOURNAMENT
Since the 2008 charter of environmental commitment (French only) signed with the French Minister for Sustainable Development and the ADEME (Agency for the environment and for energy control), the FFT has put sustainable development at the heart of its strategy as a federation.
The French Open has made a strong commitment in this field, becoming the first French sporting event to receive the ISO 20121 standard in 2014. Throughout the tournament, a campaign raises public awareness of the French Tennis Federation’s sustainable development policy, which has been officially recognised. The federation recently signed a charter containing 15 environmental commitments for the organisers of sports events, which was developed in coordination with the French Ministry of Sport and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This ambitious charter sets specific targets to help organisers enhance sustainable development efforts.
