With over four billion people watching and over 200 countries involved, the Games represent an unrivalled catalyst for sustainable change.
Together we have strived to prove that there is a different way of hosting the Games, a way that provides the best experience for athletes and spectators along with the best outcome for the community and the environment.
We focused on four areas that directly relate to anyone experiencing the Games for themselves or watching it on television:
All our venues were designed to ensure that all the athletes perform to the best of their ability whilst pushing the boundaries of sustainability knowledge and design.
We worked with Transport for London and many other partners to ensure that London’s public transport is ready for the Games, with lasting improvements and upgrades made to the network and fast new transport links to east London.
We have worked with the food industry to bring you fantastic food that is ethically and sustainably sourced.
We have thought long and hard about managing all that extra waste. We’re excited about the revolutionary new recycling system we created for the Games, which made it easier for all of you to help all of us ensure that we are able to send zero waste to landfill.
