London 2012 Releases Sustainability Plan

29th November 2007

Highlights of the sustainability plan, Towards A One Planet 2012, include: a carbon footprint study to measure the climate change impact of the Games and identify and prioritize areas for reducing emissions; work with EDF Energy, London 2012’s first sustainability partner to investigate the Olympic flame being low emission – what’s being dubbed a ‘green flame’; standards for venue construction using environmental rating tools; the development of a sustainable food strategy that promotes local, seasonal and organic produce from environmentally responsible sources;  and getting all suppliers and partners to sign  a sustainability code which is being developed and will include sustainable sourcing and ethical trading.

“The Olympic and Paralympic Games can set agendas and with Towards A One Planet 2012, we hope to use the power of the Games to drive change – behaviourally and in the way big events are staged in the future,” said London 2012 Chairman Sebastian Coe. “Sustainability was an important element of our bid and underpins our preparations and our vision for the legacy of London 2012.”
