Commission publishes statement on Olympic Stadium bid process

January 2011


The Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 has published a statement on the Olympic Stadium bid process.

As the independent body established to assure and monitor the sustainability of the London 2012 Games, our role includes the task of ensuring that the promises made in the original bid document to stage “the greenest Games ever” are upheld across all aspects of the London Olympics. This includes monitoring what happens to the stadium after the Games period ends.

Although it is not within our remit to comment on individual stadium bids, we do have three clear and fundamental criteria for a sustainable stadium legacy. These relate to:

  • Community 
  • Environment
  • Biodiversity

Further detail of these criteria, which form the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012′s position on the Olympic Stadium bid process, can be found in the accompanying release.
