Championships for Mother Nature
2019 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships to be Fossil Fuel Free
The Organisers of the 2019 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships at Åre in Sweden have joined forces with the regional Jämtland County government to limit climate impact by announcing that the Championships, along with other major international events due to be staged in Jämtland, will operated on a ‘fossil fuel free’ basis.

Making these events, which also include the Östersund 2019 IBU Biathlon World Championships, fossil fuel free is a complex matter but commitments that have been agreed so far include initiatives with public transport, electric vehicles, renewable energy and innovation.

“Ensuring positive legacies and showing respect for the environment are at the core of our mission and integrated in all our work. To manage the event’s impact further, we have created a structured sustainability programme and one of our priorities is limiting climate impact by reducing the event’s carbon footprint,“ said Niklas Carlsson, CEO of Åre 2019.

The initiative is being seen as a stepping stone by the Jämtland Härjedalen Region to become an entirely fossil fuel free region by 2030.
