The full pre-Games Sustainability Report covers the London 2012 delivery of the entire Olympic and Paralympic programme, with a spotlight on performance up to April 2012, three months before the start of the Games. The Report was prepared using the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G3.1 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines and Event Organisers Sector Supplement and has been checked by GRI to be consistent with an application level of A. We were delighted to be asked to assist LOCOG with this process.
Total Eco Managements, Global Director of Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility, Nicole Lawler was presented with The London 2012 Sustainability Ambassador Award for her outstanding contribution to achieving a truly sustainable Olympic and Paralympic Games.
LOCOG, Head of Sustainability, David Stubbs said: ‘The complexities of trying to address sustainability in areas that have never been considered before was a constant challenge but we are thrilled with the outcome of our programme.
Achieving the BS 8901 Standard and an ‘A rating’ for our report are real demonstrations of our commitment and success in delivering sustainability across all the areas that matter to our stakeholders.’
London 2012 sustainability measures were praised by UN Under-Secretary General Achim Steiner who visited the Olympic Park to mark the launch of the London 2012 pre-Games sustainability report.
Event organisers can now report on sustainability issues like impacts on communities, natural environments, and local and global economies. Registrations are open for the next round of GRI Training in the UK: 12 - 13 July 2012
