In order to pursue common sustainable goals, the IBU has launched the Climate Club Trophy together with Viessmann ahead of the upcoming Biathlon World Championships in Oberhof.

The IBU has set as a key objective of its sustainability strategy that present and future generations can continue to enjoy snow sports and nature. According to this, the three dimensions of environment, social affairs and economy are to be made sustainable. The behaviour of all members of the biathlon family plays an important role in this.

As an Official Climate Partner, IBU has Viessmann at its side. Viessmann develops intelligent and sustainable solutions in the areas of heating, energy and climate. A global climate strategy and awareness of social responsibility play an important role. With its own know-how, energy-saving potentials can be identified and CO2 can be reduced through Viessmann solutions, now and especially for future generations.

We will share the best and most inspiring stories from biathlon clubs all over the world and the final winner will be selected via fan voting.
