The United Nations Environment Programme will mediate dialogue with civil society on the plan, which is supported by the pillars: Planet, People and Prosperity

The Organising Committee for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games presented the Sustainability Management Plan of the Rio 2016 Games, established with the three levels of government (federal, state and municipal) to lay the foundations and integrate the principles, actions and projects related to sustainability in planning and operating events.
 
"Our goal is to integrate sustainability in all organisational processes, reducing the impact of the Games and setting an example of good practice for society as a whole", said Rio 2016 President, Carlos Arthur Nuzman.
 
The launch was marked by the signing of a technical cooperation agreement with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), which provides, among other activities, an evaluation plan and mediation around the subject of sustainability between Rio 2016 and civil society.

The sub-brand "Embrace" Rio 2016, which will be used in all Games communications related to the Sustainability Plan, was also launched.  It will serve as a standard for the way in which the organization embraces programmes and projects aligned with the planīs principles. The idea behind the chosen name is to engage people, inviting them to be part of the transformation promoted by the event.
 
The strategic goals of the Sustainability Plan also correspond to the three pillars that were proposed in the Games bid application and are aligned with the principles of sustainable development ratified by the United Nations Conference on the Environment. The three pillars consist of the following nine themes:
 
Planet (Reduced Environmental Footprint): Transport and Logistics, Sustainable Design and Construction, Conservation and Environmental Restoration, Waste Management
 
People: Engagement and Awareness, Universal Accessibility, Diversity and Inclusion
 
Prosperity: Sustainable Supply Chain, Management and Reporting
