The London 2012 Olympic Games are on track to meet sustainability targets, according to the latest report. The ODA (Olympic Delivery Authority) is on track or exceeding the wide-ranging set of sustainability targets for the London 2012 construction project. Among other achievements, the ODA is currently delivering 60% of materials by weight by rail or water transport, beating a target of 50% and dramatically reducing vehicle movements and the resulting carbon emissions. Ninety per cent of construction waste is being diverted from landfill and is being reused or recycled instead. The total carbon footprint 'owned' by London 2012 after sustainability and reduction measures have been taken into account is expected to be 1.9Mtonnes CO2e. These emissions are spread over the seven year duration of the project from bid win to Games-time. To give some context to this, over this seven year period, London 2012's carbon footprint amounts to 0.05% of the UK's total emissions. Olympics Minister Rt Hon Tessa Jowell MP said, "The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games is an iconic project taking place at a time when the world is faced with the global challenges from climate change. That's why they must be more than just six weeks of sport, they must also provide a blue print for sustainable working and living. "This report shows we are on track to achieving a zero waste Games, and have significantly reduced the carbon footprint through reduction measures, such as using rail and water routes to get materials on to the Olympic Park, building an Energy Centre to provide low-carbon power and designing park venues to be as energy efficient as possible."
