IWWF Commits to Safeguarding Nature Under New Framework

December 18 2022 - News Release News Editorial

Twenty-three sports organisations including the IWWF and International Olympic Committee (IOC), as a founding partner, and the Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, have signed the first-ever Sports for Nature Framework.

IWWF Commits to Safeguarding Nature Under New Framework

The signatories pledge to adhere to four key principles that will safeguard nature and contribute to the new global goals for biodiversity, which governments are expected to agree to later this week at the Convention on Biological Diversity 15th Conference of the Parties meeting (COP15) in Montreal.

Co-created by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the IOC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in collaboration with 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.

The Framework brings together sports federations, leagues, clubs and events in a commitment 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.
