The IOC will ensure the regular celebration of the Olympic Games, encourage and support a responsible concern with the environment, promote sustainable development in sport and demand compliance by the Olympic Games with these tenets.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is the higher authority of the Olympic Movement. Acting as a catalyst of the collaboration between all branches of the Olympic Family, National Olympic Committees, International Sport Federations, athletes, Organizing Committees of Olympic Games, sponsors, broadcast rightsholders and UN agencies, the IOC develops a full series of programs and projects to fulfill its mission of promoting an integrated sport and education culture, guided by its vision of contributing to the construction of a better world through sport and protection of the excellence, friendship and respect values.
