  • Lessons from London 2012 – Developing a Sustainable Games Interview by Helen Winsor, Construction IQShaun McCarthy, Chair of the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012, joins Construction IQ to discuss the benefits of turning BS 8901 into a globally recognised standard and some specific lessons the UK sports construction industry and the London 2012 experience can offer sustainable sports venues globally.Construction IQ: What is the background of BS 8901and why was it developed in the firstplace?S McCarthy: London set out in the bid to be the most sustainable games ever. What we’vediscovered during the course of the bid is there isn’t really a framework to define how youdeliver a sustainable event so the development of BS 8901 was very much on the back of thatwith LOCOG the organising committee working with BSI to work through a managementsystem that actually works for the events sector.Construction IQ: What is your role in the development of ISO 20121?S McCarthy: The plan is to change BS 8901 to an international standard that can be usedthroughout the world. As chair of the independent commission overseeing the sustainability ofLondon 2012, I don’t actually have a role in the development of ISO 20121 but the work of thecommission actually helps to inform it because we’re looking all the time at the performanceof LOCOG and their partners in terms of the sustainability of the event and our work helps toinform the development of that standard.To download this interview in full and access the mp3 please click here:http://www.iqpc.com/Event.aspx?id=673970&utm_campaign=Helen&utm_medium=HWOnline&utm_source=Slidshare&MAC=HW_PROMO_21081.001_SS__________________________________________________________________________Shaun McCarthy will be speaking at the Sustainable Sports Venues Conference, due to takeplace in London, UK in November 2012.
