During 2011 we surveyed and interviewed a large group of London 2012 stakeholders. Our goal was to prioritise the huge range of London 2012 sustainability issues in the areas in which our stakeholders have most interest.
While this year’s complete Sustainability Report covers all of our material sustainability impacts, this summary focuses on the issues that our stakeholders said matter to them the most. We hope that by organising our achievements and challenges under priority issues, they find it easier to navigate the wealth of information about sustainability at the Games. We are very grateful for the time and energy so many people gave to uncover these priorities during our research.
This summary report is provided by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) on behalf of the London 2012 Sustainability Group, which comprises senior representatives from the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), Government Olympic Executive, Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and Greater London Authority, together with wider representatives such as the Department for Communities and Local Government, London Legacy Development Corporation (formerly Olympic Park Legacy Company), NHS London, British Olympic Association and British Paralympic Association. It covers London 2012’s delivery of the whole Olympic and Paralympic programme, with a spotlight on our performance up to April 2012, three months before the Games start.
