“The New Norm”, an ambitious set of 118 reforms that reimagines how the Olympic Games are delivered, was presented to members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at its 132nd Session. The plan is a strategic approach including updated services and requirements that will lead to a maximum savings of hundreds of millions of dollars in the delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Conducted in close collaboration with partners and industry experts, the Olympic Games Delivery Executive Steering Committee analyzed every function of operations, including venues, energy, broadcasting, accommodation, transport and technology, and also looked at the Paralympic Games. The IOC will work with cities every step of the way to ensure that the Games are affordable, beneficial and sustainable.
The International Olympic Committee is a not-for-profit independent international organization made up of volunteers, and is committed to building a better world through sports. It redistributes more than 90 per cent of its income to the wider sporting movement, which means that every day the equivalent of 3.4 million US dollars goes to help athletes and sports organizations at all levels around the world.
