A review and synthesis of environmentalism within the Olympic Movement / Anthony Gino del Fiacco, Madeleine Orr

Del Fiacco, Anthony Gino | Orr, Madeleine

The purpose of this paper is to delineate shifts in environmental sustainability leadership in the Olympic Movement through a historical narrative. A systematic literature review was conducted and data were analyzed chronologically. Four eras are identified, distinguished by different leadership and levels of commitment toward the natural environment: public-driven environmental sustainability, host city-driven environmental sustainability, International Olympic Committee-mandated environmental sustainability and environmental regression.
