road to RioElia is one of the new partners of the Belgian Olympic and Interfederal Committee (COIB/BOIC), and more specifically of the Road to Rio project.

This project is being run in conjunction with the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB/VBO) to involve various companies in the joint countdown to 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. The Olympic athletes themselves will also be taking part in a number of the different events being organised, which include Golf to Rio, Run to Rio and Catwalk to Rio. The Games themselves will be experienced together at Rio House. Elia subscribes to the Olympic values and is proud to be a partner.

"We believe in this initiative, which is a fine example of companies working together. The Olympic values, like team spirit, excellence and respect, to name but a few, are strong and universal, and we are very keen to promote these values within and beyond our company. Furthermore, being a Belgian company, we want to encourage our athletes and help them produce some once-in-a-lifetime performances", explained Elia CEO Jacques Vandermeiren.
