France 2023 and World Rugby confirmed their mutual ambition, with Rugby World Cup France 2023, to raise the existing standards for international sporting events in terms of social responsibility, inclusion and sustainable development.
Four key engagements have been taken: acting for a sustainable and circular economy; investing in education, training and employment ; reducing impact on the environment; fostering inclusion and accessibility for all.
More than words, France 2023 and World Rugby have the desire to show tangible proof of their actions, through 15 innovative projects, some already launched and others soon to be deployed.
« As an Organising Committee, it is fundamental to demonstrate that you keep in mind the fact that an event has to answer to a reason of existence. You have to be both responsible and exemplary. At France 2023, as in rugby, we show tangible proves of our engagement, without waiting for the event to start, through real programs which will shift lines. »
Claude ATCHER, CEO of France 2023
