Paris 2024 inks ArcelorMittal deal

March 27, 2023

Global steel firm ArcelorMittal has joined the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games as an Official Partner. The partnership will see ArcelorMittal produce Olympic and Paralympic Torches for the Games.

ArcelorMittal will also manufacture other items, such as the cauldrons, which will be lit at the ceremonies, the Olympic rings logo, and the Paralympic agitos logo. Both the cauldrons and the torches will be made with low-carbon footprint as part of Paris 2024’s environmental goals. 

Lakshmi Mittal, Executive Chairman of ArcelorMittal, commented:

We are very proud to be an official partner of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Game. This global event, the most famous and engaging sports event in the world, resonates with the values that drive our group and all of our 154,000 employees around the world – the desire to constantly raise the bar, inclusion and diversity, and the quest for net zero, illustrated by the Paris 2024 ambition to limit its CO2 footprint. It is a great honour for ArcelorMittal and for me to contribute to this exceptional celebration of sport.

Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024, added:

Torches and Cauldrons are among the great symbols of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Torches will travel thousands of kilometres during the Torch Relay, close to the people of France, while hundreds of thousands of spectators and billions of television viewers will see the Cauldrons ignite and extinguish during the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Games. We are delighted to be working with ArcelorMittal, a leader in steel, to manufacture these essential elements, as well as the large rings and agitos that will be installed in Paris. Thanks to its capacity for innovation, ArcelorMittal will also take up the challenge of making the Games both spectacular and more sustainable.
