The International Canoe Federation has a vested interest in protecting the environment, and has made a significant commitment to playing it's part in delivering sustainable events.

The ICF launched its sustainability program in Augsburg, Germany, in 2018, and in 2019 will work with events in La Seu, Spain, and Pitesti,  Romania, to build on this platform.

The ICF has also successfully teamed up with the IOC and UN Environment to promote the CleanSeas project, highlighting the growing problem of plastics in our waterways.
