Portable air conditioning (AC) systems were ordered and are going to be delivered to the dorms in the Olympics 2024's Athlete's Village in Paris despite organizers' drive to make the global sports event the "most sustainable" and "greenest" sports event ever.

Paris organizers were proud of what they called "their boldest measure" of supposedly not installing air conditioning in the rooms where the athletes will be sleeping. They claimed that other cooling measures would be implemented during the said affair that will run from July 26 to Aug. 11. They assured athletes that they wouldn't need it as the rooms will draw water from underground. The buildings are also said to be oriented so they get little direct sun.
