Sustainability Background
2012 the greenest games
2012 – the Greenest Games

Waste and materials:

  • To reduce waste through design
  • 90% of demolition material to be reused or recycled and
  • at least 20 per cent of materials used in permanent venues and associated works and the Olympic Village to be recycled.
2012 the greenest games8
2012 – the Greenest Games

Transport and mobility:

  • To prioritise walking, cycling and the use of public transport to and within the Olympic Park and venues, including building over
  • 80km of walking and cycling routes and to aspire to
  • 50 per cent of construction materials to be transported to the Park by water and rail
2012 the greenest games9
2012 – the Greenest Games

Biodiversity and Ecology:

  • Ecological management plans, including
  • wildlife species protection and
  • tree preservation orders.
  • Re-profiling of the waterways,
  • extending wetland habitats
2012 the greenest games10
2012 – the Greenest Games

Supporting communities:

  • To create new, safe, mixed-use public space, housing and facilities appropriate to the demographics and character of the Lower Lea Valley, adaptable to future climates.
  • Creation of the largest new urban park in Europe for 150 years
  • Between 30 and 35 new, permanent bridges built across the waterways, railways and roads that dissect the site
  • Safe areas created by avoiding overshadowed areas and maximising clear sightlines and lighting
2012 the greenest games11
2012 – the Greenest Games

Materials:

  • To identify, source, and use environmentally and socially responsible materials.
  • At least 20 per cent of materials used in permanent venues and the Olympic Village will have previously been used somewhere else, or be a recycled product
  • Maximise timber from sustainable sources with all timber used from known, legal sources, with clear supply chain evidence.
2012 the greenest games12
2012 – the Greenest Games

Access:

  • To create a highly accessible Olympic Park and venues by meeting the principles of inclusive design.
  • Inclusive design principles and access strategies for each venue
  • Shallow gradients within the Park ensure accessibility
2012 the greenest games13
2012 – the Greenest Games

Climate Change

  • Aiming to minimise the carbon emissions associated with the Olympic Park and venues through a
  • 50% reduction in carbon dioxide by 2013.
  • On-site energy generation
  • Renewable energy
  • Project future-proofed so it can go even further as new technology allows
2012 the greenest games14
2012 – the Greenest Games

Water:

  • To ensure efficient water use, reuse and recycling, with a target for a
  • 40 per cent reduction in the demand for potable water in permanent venues and a
  • 20 per cent reduction target for residential development

  • Targets are not challenging enough.
  • Many aims fall short of existing government energy targets, especially on energy and water use.
  • Plans to make houses in the Olympic Village 25%-35% more energy efficient than those built today would meet national targets set in place for 2010 – two years before the games.
  • Sydney hit 50% through PVs and Solar Thermal
  • The Olympic Village dwellings will come onto the market in 2013 – at a time when Government’s own targets for new build will be equal to c.50% more energy efficient than 2006 Building Regulations.
  • Targets for generating 20% of the village’s energy from on-site renewables merely match the existing goals of the London Plan for 2008.

  • By 2012, many new developments in London will exceed current aspirations for the Olympics.
  • Allan Jones, chief executive of the London Climate Change Agency, a company set up by Ken Livingstone to devise projects to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the capital, says:
    • “Before the Olympics is ever built you will see zero-carbon development, which will put pressure on the people who think the Olympics is the exemplar.”

RIBA Response - Energy
  • Govt policy is all new homes to be zero carbon by 2016,
  • ODA currently proposed standards for the legacy are patchy and not aspirational.
  • The whole Lower Lea Valley should be zero carbon in 2012.
riba response water
RIBA Response - Water
  • The aim of reducing water use by 20% in the Olympic Village merely complies with existing building regulations.
  • Sydney reduced by 50%
  • This reduction equates to a daily water consumption of 130 litres per person – far more than the mayor’s proposed target for London of just 70 litres a day.

  • Key Issue
    • No Olympic board member has specific responsibility for sustainability
commission for a sustainable london 2012
Commission for a Sustainable London 2012
  • To provide assurance and monitoring of London's Olympic pledge to host the most sustainable Games ever
  • Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 was announced alongside the sustainability strategy.
  • Reporting direct to the Olympic Board.

Shaun McCarthy, chair of the newly created Commission; quote
  • the ODA’s current targets are
    • “not sufficiently challenging”
    • “In terms of the detail, there are some targets that probably don’t go far enough.”
