TEN YEARS OF ACTIONS TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING WITH THE CONTRIBUTION OF CLIMATEPARTNER.
The 33rd Athens Marathon. The Authentic, is a milestone in the implementation of good practices that respect the environment and support sustainable development.
In 2015, this unique sporting event is celebrating ten years of its environmental program.
Through the innovative emissions offsetting program, which helps mitigate emissions caused by the transportation of the international and local runners, more than 2,800 tons of CO2 equivalents have been offset by supporting certified carbon offset projects around the world. This program is supported by Coca-Cola Hellas.
CLIMATEPARTNER has assisted in meeting the target of climate neutrality since the very beginning through the services of its representative company in Greece “GLOBAL CHALLENGES environmental and sustainability advisors”, offering a series of credible offsets from carbon offset projects around the globe.
With the active contribution of the organizers, volunteers, runners, spectators, and sponsors, the Athens Marathon has become an exemplary environmentally friendly event for the international running movement.
This year, the voluntary emissions offsetting program has also been acknowledged internationally, as it is included in the actions promoted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change initiative “Climate neutral now”: www.climateneutralnow.org
