London 2012 Olympics were 'greenest ever', report claims
Olympic Games watchdog, the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012, issues report highlighting record carbon savings.


What does the city of Chelmsford have in common with the London 2012 Olympic Games?

The answer is that they both required 35 million kilowatt hours to operate, although one used that much over the course of a year and the other used the same amount in just one month.

The Olympic Games watchdog, The Commission for a Sustainable London 2012, has today published its post-games report, attempting to quantify the sustainability efforts of the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG).

The Commission concluded the Games broadly delivered against its key environmental objectives, and is on track to meet targets to send zero waste to landfill and ensure 70 per cent of waste is re-used, recycled, or composted.

However, the report also highlights a number of concerns, particularly around energy management.

"Games-time" carbon savings of 20 per cent delivered through a reduction in energy use are on track to be achieved, the Commission said. However, it said it was "disappointed" with LOCOG's last-minute development of a comprehensive energy plan, which limited the potential for further carbon reductions.

The Commission said LOCOG was on track to exceed its target to reduce energy consumption by 20 per cent compared to a business-as-usual baseline, given that energy savings were implemented in the design process.

OL-vaktbikkjen, Kommisjonen for et Bærekraftig London 2012, legger frem rapport som viser rekordstore karbonbesparelser.

Hva har byen Chelmsford til felles med London-lekene?
Svaret er at begge krevde 35 millioner kilowatt-timer for å holdes i gang; (selv om) en av dem trengte så mye i løpet av ett år mens den andre brukte samme mengde på kun en måned.
OL-vaktbikkjen, Kommisjonen for et Bærekraftig London 2012, har i dag offentliggjort sin rapport i etterkant av OL.
I den prøver de å tallfeste hvor bærekraftig innsatsen til LOCOG (den olympiske organisasjonskomiteen) har vært.
Kommisjonen konkluderte med at lekene i hovedsak nådde sine miljømålsetninger, og er på god vei til å få til mål om å sende null avfall til deponier og sikre at 70% av avfallet blir gjenbrukt, resirkulert eller kompostert.
Rapporten fokuserer også på en rekke utfordringer, spesielt knyttet til energihåndtering.

Målet om 20% lavere karbonutslipp i løpet av lekene, oppnådd gjennom en reduksjon i energibruk, er ifølge kommisjonen i ferd med å bli nådd. Kommisjonen er derimot skuffet over LOCOGs sene endringer av en omfattende energiplan, en endring som begrenset muligheten for ytterligere CO2-reduksjoner.
Kommisjonen sa også at LOCOG var i ferd med å overgå sitt mål om å redusere lekenes energiforbruk med 20% sammenlignet med et vanlig utgangspunkt, gitt at energibesparelser ble inkludert i planleggingsprosessen.
