The Charter of 15 environmentally responsible commitments

January 01, 2022 | The Amundi Evian Championship


As we begin 2022, The Amundi Evian Championship is proud to announce it is a signatory of the “Charter of 15 environmentally responsible commitments for event organizers and venue operators to be achieved by 2024”. The women’s major golf championship held each year at the Evian Resort Golf Club thus joins the group of leading French events (Roland Garros, the Tour de France...) to have signed this agreement.

To ensure that the commitment can be made by all and guarantee that the work carried out is effective and efficient, the signatories have agreed on two principles:

The charter of 15 commitments is a collective tool that standardizes everyone’s environmental and social ambitions.  Its strength lies in a collective commitment to reach its goals. Each signatory is therefore aware of the fact that its non-compliance of the commitments destroys the credibility of the charter and thus the efforts made by other signatories;

It is mandatory that the signature of this charter be made as part of a global strategy to reduce environmental impact and phase out the use of fossil fuels. Therefore, a company or association cannot be part of the initiative if its core business is contradictory to the charter’s aims.

These 15 commitments are set out in several points and are integrated into events via clear, well-defined and transparent goals : 




  • COMMITMENT 1  Sustainable food : 80% of food is sustainable
  • COMMITMENT 2 Sustainable mobility : 90% of travel is sustainable mobility &  Stop 95% of plane travel for journeys that can be made in under 5 hours door to door via other means of transport

  • COMMITMENT 5 Preservation of water and energy resources & 100% of energy and water consumption is controlled and optimised


    • COMMITMENT 6 Sustainable purchasing : 1 operational sustainable purchasing policy for all strategic buying categories
    • COMMITMENT 7 Sponsorship : 80% of sponsors are involved in reaching the charter’s aims
    • COMMITMENT 8 Digital footprint : 1 analysis or report of the current situation carried out
