The Commission has published a snapshot review of the sustainability of London 2012 merchandise.

The recommendations are:

That LOCOG communicate the sustainability of their licensed products.

That LOCOG work with their licensees to produce a series of case studies showing how the companies have responded to LOCOG’s requirements and improved the sustainability performance of their products. These should cover a range of sustainability impacts including carbon footprinting, ethical supply, local employment, packaging and materials used.

That LOCOG work with their suppliers and licensees to communicate the complaints and dispute resolution process to workers throughout the supply chain, including at the factory level.
