Sustainable guidelines for Olympics published
Guidelines for the sustainable organisation of events related to the London 2012 Olympic Games have been released.

London 2012, the organisation delivering the Olympics, published the guidelines for corporate and public events and contributed to the development of the British Standard for a Sustainable Event Management System (BS 8901).

Head of sustainability, David Stubbs, said: "Events are a key part of this - between now and 2012, we will be holding any number of events, from press conferences to cultural events and our guidelines will ensure they are arranged and run in the most sustainable way possible."

According to the guidelines, sustainability includes having a minimal impact on the environment, encouraging healthy living, promoting responsible sourcing and providing an accessible and inclusive setting for all.

They claim that transport and travel could be the most significant environmental factors for an event and calls on organisers to prioritise public transport, cycle and walking as the best way to get to the venue.

Meanwhile, Lord Sebastian Coe that the games would help bring inbound tourism as the number of foreign visitors swelled.
