The Temporary Venues ODA are responsible for have individual project targets, as with the permanent venues. The targets will be different, reflecting the temporary nature of the venues. There will be more of a focus on materials and reuse, and recycling post Games. The focus will be on reducing the lifecycle impacts of the buildings, rather than setting targets for operational aspects such as energy or water in use, which may lead to inappropriate decision making for a short life span. Performance against targets will be monitored on a quarterly basis, as with permanent venues. LOCOG intend to lease where possible so that items are reused after the Games. It is not yet fully clear what standards are being applied to leased items. LOCOG is developing a temporary materials handbook, which we will review when it is made available. Sustainable Design Requirements have been produced and circulated to all design teams for incorporation in their designs. The Commission wishes to see targets developed for this area. A materials policy has been adopted, along with specific policies on plastic tensile fabrics and HFC and the ODA have procured a materials advice service. The London 2012 Sustainability Plan contains the commitment to 'take reasonable endeavours to reuse or recycle at least 90 per cent, by weight, of the material arising from the installation and deconstruction of its temporary venues and overlay (stretch target)' The ODA is taking on greater role in park operations and venue management after completion, during the Games and in transformation. This is still being finalised and will become clearer during 2010. Closed (recommendations from the 2009 Annual Review take precedence)
