In providing, to time and budget, specific venues, public infrastructure, public and private transport, accommodation, recreational facilities, marketing materials and special events for the WSSD 2002, JOWSCO’s commitment is to:

Protect and enhance remnant natural ecosystems at all venues, sites and facilities and encourage the reuse of temporary and portable facilities by local communities post-Summit

Encourage the use of recycled materials and reduce waste generation, specifically in packaging, marketing and catering materials

JOWSCO Environmental Policy

Minimise the demand for potable water from the City of Johannesburg’s mains supply

Minimise the use of energy from non-renewable sources and minimise the use of private vehicles

Preserve areas for future generations and seek to integrate existing open spaces with other public use areas through landscaping and greening initiatives

Minimise the use of ozone depleting substances

Minimise the use of materials which deplete natural resources or create toxic pollution

JOWSCO Environmental Policy

Minimise the impacts of noise and night lighting on

environmental conservation and neighbouring residential areas

Minimise impacts on air quality

Protect soil and sediments within areas fro which JOWSCO

is responsible

Be sensitive to the social impact of the Summit on the people of the
