Recommendation

Responsibility for the whole residual footprint should rest with the Olympic Board, who should allocate responsibility for mitigation to the organisation best placed to achieve it. This will not necessarily be the organisation that caused the emissions. The organisations to whom responsibility is allocated could be in wider government; they will not necessarily always be Key Stakeholders.

The Olympic Board and OBSG considered the carbon footprint and determined that mitigation would be through a combination of legacy learning - particularly in the construction industry - and behavioural change such as via the mass participation campaigns by sponsors and other partners. The ODA has launched its learning legacy, which includes information about how others can follow their lead, including cutting construction-related carbon emissions. It is not clear what impact behavioural change initiatives are having as accurate measurement is often very difficult. Closed

The Olympic Board and OBSG considered the carbon footprint and determined that mitigation would be through a combination of legacy learning - particularly in the construction industry - and behavioural change such as via the EDF Energy campaign. The implementation and measurement of these methods is still to be determined. Progress Made

This review was published in December 2009 so it was too early to report on progress in the 2009 Annual Review. A statement on progress will be provided in the 2010 Annual Review.
