The AISTS also provides complete support to sport federations for the approval and testing of equipment.

Sustainability and Legacy

At the AISTS we are continually gathering the best experts in sustainability from our partner organisations and international sports community to be able to offer the latest solutions to our clients. Our focus is sport and events for a sustainable future and our ultimate goal is to help the Olympic Movement to continue to lower its footprint while developing positive impacts through behavior change.

We work closely with the EPFL, the architecture and sustainability departments of the University of Lausanne, Quantis, the International Olympic Committee and several International Federations to help provide our clients with the most sustainable solutions for their stakeholders.

We offer tailored research on individual client sustainability practices, case studies collections and publications on sustainability initiatives from International Federations and National Olympic Committees, sustainability management and action plans, and our annual Sustainable Sport and Events Programme.
