Minimising our Impact

Minimising our Impact

The field of play in biathlon comprises two very different stages, the cross-country courses and the shooting range. Each is subject to highly distinct requirements to enable top performance. Each also faces different challenges concerning their impact on the surrounding environment and the people participating in the sport. Addressing the key issues with potentially significant long-term health consequences will not only reduce the negative impacts but also make the sport more sustainable and attractive in the long term.

In the focus area "Sport" we work on topics like

  • Snow management

  • Fluorinated wax

  • Air quality

  • Lead

  • Salting

  • Sport equipment and materials
