The carbon footprinting works found that temporary materials form the biggest part of LOCOG's portion of the carbon footprint. This has led to a target to hire 85% of their temporary venues and infrastructure. LOCOG is currently projecting that they will meet the target and hire 87%. It has developed a temporary materials handbook to help address the issues where it is procuring materials. This will be used by designers. LOCOG has also produced a Venues Sustainability Strategy, including KPIs, a Health, Safety and Sustainability Standard and Sustainable Design Requirements (SDR). Venues/project teams are required to set out how they will implement the SDR. Complete
