Paris, 24 September 2004 – Today, the Founding Committee of Paris 2012 unanimously approved the technical contents of the Paris 2012 Candidature File, which is to be submitted to the International Olympic Committee on 15 November 2004.
There were three main points which emerged from the meeting:
 
1. To meet the International Federations’ demands - Volleyball will now be staged at Palais Omnisport de Paris Bercy, as opposed to Roland Garros, whilst Judo and Badminton will be moved to Roland-Garros from Palais Omnisport.
 
2. The Olympic Lane will be significantly extended to include all roads that lead from the Peripherique to competition venues in Paris and Ile-de-France. This will also include the Charles-de-Gaulle Airport. As part of the Strategic Transport Plan, the extended Olympic Lane will guarantee timely transport to the various competition venues for the Olympic Family.
 
3. An ambitious Sustainable Development Charter for Paris 2012 has been approved and adopted. This is the most advanced plan of its kind ever developed in France: it will commit Paris 2012 to fully integrate environmental and sustainable development requirements within all its decisions. It will make public its performance in this area and will be audited by independent experts.
 
Philippe Baudillon, CEO of Paris 2012, said: "This is an historic moment for our Bid. We have received unanimous approval and a powerful mandate to present our imaginative and exciting proposals to the IOC."
 
Paris 2012 will be releasing information of the Candidature File, once it has been submitted to the IOC on November 15th.
