ITTF Joins Historic Sport for Nature Framework

Co-created by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the Sports for Nature Framework aims to deliver transformative action for nature across sports, by 2030 and beyond.

As part of the framework, signatories pledge to adhere to four key principles that will safeguard nature and contribute to the new global goals for biodiversity. Sports federations, leagues, clubs and events have committed to protect and avoid damage to important species and habitats, restore key ecosystems; create sustainable supply chains, and educate and inspire the wider sporting community to take action for nature. World governments are expected to ratify the framework later this week.
