Recommendation

The residual footprint should be mitigated using a variety of techniques: LOCOG should encourage the IOC to include carbon footprint measurement and management for future bids and make this part of the decision criteria for host city awards.

The Carbon Footprint methodology is to be part of the Knowledge Transfer programme to future Games. Rio 2016 is using the London 2012 methodology to footprint its Games and the consultancy that worked with London 2012 on its methodology has advised Sochi 2014 and the Chicago 2016 bid team. Whilst we have no evidence that the IOC will be requiring this of future bids, other cities are clearly utilising the methodology and approach. Closed

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.
