The deal will see ES Global provide tents, scaffolding structures and containment for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, aligning with Paris 2024’s vision of hosting the Games using 95% of “existing venues and temporary infrastructure” to reduce their carbon footprint. Among the structures to be supplied by ES Global, there will also be a wall for sport climbing.
ES Global has announced that all items will be reused after the Games as the firm aims to reuse 90% of the items and recycle or upcycle the rest.
