Following discussion with LOCOG we expect LOCOG to be able to demonstrate that the flowers will be symbols of sustainability at Games-time but cannot comment further for reasons of confidentiality. The metals for the medals will all have a full chain of custody, including ISO 14001 certification for mines and use of the Responsible Jewellery Council standards. The Commission understands that this is a first for the Games. Management of complaints in the supply chain are currently being assured by the Commission. Complete

LOCOG have advertised the flowers opportunity on CompeteFor. This included a requirement to 'provide a sustainable solution in line with the LOCOG Sustainable Sourcing Code that tells a story from both an environmental and social perspective'. The sourcing of metals for the medals is also being carried out with the intent to support the sustainability of the Games. Progress Made
