Vinci, the French construction company, has become an official supporter of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris.

The deal, struck with the organizing committee, sees Vinci commit to cutting carbon emissions during stadium works in line with Paris 2024’s pledge to organize the games more responsibly.

Specifically, Vinci is looking to cut carbon emissions by 40% while building the Athletes’ Village in Saint-Denis, Paris, by using low-carbon concrete, as well as through its refurbishments at the Stade de France, which will host the closing ceremony for the Olympics and Paralympics.

The company said it will also champion the uptake of the environmental and social best practices during the games.

Vinci’s maintenance and service support specialists, meanwhile, will also support the teams at Paris 2024 by providing facilities management services.

In a statement, the company said: “Vinci closely identifies with the pledge made by Paris 2024 to organize the games in a more responsible way, keeping the carbon emissions generated by the event to less than half of those from previous games while creating job opportunities and celebrating the positive impact sport can have on society.”
