Sustainable Development at the heart of the organization

The Pau Canoë Evénement Association continues its commitment to sustainable development and even more so this year!

The whole team is proud to announce the formalization of its "Sustainable Development, Sport is committed" label at the Silver level.

This label, awarded by the CNOSF, shows all the work we do to create sustainability and eco-responsibility in our events and more particularly in the Canoe-Kayak World Cup Final.

Now the next goal is to reach the GOLD level for the next editions!

FIC and Sustainability

In 2021, a partnership between the ICF and Starboard was launched with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of competitions. Starboard will help the FIC to make events climate neutral. As a result, the carbon footprint will be offset by planting mangroves in Myanmar.
