The IOC Sustainability Essentials as well as the Sustainability case studies gathered over the period 2016-2019 have served not only as inspiration, but also as essential guidance in preparing the structure of both the forthcoming three sustainability strategies (NOCs of the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia), and the ASAP Sustainability Strategy Creation Roadmap.

All the more delighted was the ASAP Team to have learnt that the IOC decided to include the project amongst the 2020 Sustainability Case studies. The twenty new case studies, among which only two NOC-lead initiatives, were unveiled during the IOC IF Sustainability Session, which also saw twenty Olympic Movement organisations (15 International Sports Federations and 5 NOCs) being awarded with this year’s Carbon Action Awards of the IOC and DOW.

The ASAP project case study highlights one of the most important elements and building blocks of the project -  partnership and mutual learning:

The programme is designed to catalyse the power of partnerships in the pursuit of sustainable development. While the programme has a direct goal of bridging the gaps between mentors and mentees and support the creation of concrete strategies, it was also designed to leave a positive legacy that can be leveraged, and even replicated, by other organisations on a global scale.”

The ASAP Teams looks forward to further developing this dimension and to sharing project’s outputs and experiences with a wide (sport organisations') audience.
