  • Sustainable development to date hasn’t been a idea which we can clearly communicate to people The term Sustainable development is now used so widely that we need to need to think more clearly about what is and what isn’t sustainable Ecological Footprinting can help us decide what is truly sustainable One Planet Living – a phrase first coined by BioRegional – makes sustainability easy to communicate to everyone
  • What do we need to sustain? Need to live within environmental limits. Environment is our fixed limit, within that you have the whole of human society, and within that you have our economic system. Biosphere’s ability to do two things -
  • What is biologically productive land? Include / exclude Percentages, total available Number of people 1.8 hectares Biodiversity?
  • P eople are turning resources into waste faster than nature can turn waste back into resources. Humanity is no longer living off nature’s interest, but drawing down its capital. “ 50% of the ecological footprint is carbon – or you can say that our carbon footprint is half our problem”
  • These items are not included – what do you do? Use extended or satellite accounts in tandem

  • Guardian website. Posted by George Monbiot Wednesday 27 May 2009 13.12 BST guardian.co.uk Stern breaks the east-west deadlock on who's responsible for CO2 China says it's unfair that the west 'outsources' emissions. Now that Lord Stern has said responsibility should be split between producers and consumers, other countries may follow suit Comments (37) Cyclists pass through thick pollution from a factory in Yutian, 100km east of Beijing in China's northwest Hebei province. Photograph: PETER PARKS/AFP/Getty Images I think I heard the quiet tinkling sound of an unacknowledged breakthrough last week: a statement that could make the difference between success and failure at December's crucial climate talks in Copenhagen . One of the issues that could sink the talks is the question of "outsourced emissions". This refers to greenhouse gases produced in one nation on behalf of another. The UK, for example, is comfortably meeting its commitments under the Kyoto protocol only because much of our manufacturing industry has moved to China. Under Kyoto rules, the pollution produced by Chinese factories making goods for the UK belongs to China. The protocol counts only the production, not the consumption, of greenhouse gases. China says this is unfair. Around half the recent increase in its emissions arises from the manufacture of goods for western markets . This pollution should, it says, belong to the consumer nations, not the producers. A successor to the Kyoto protocol which did not recognise this would punish China for our consumption. The rich nations have been furiously resisting this idea. That's not surprising: a study by the Stockholm Environment Institute for the British government suggests that carbon dioxide emissions caused by the UK's consumption increased by 18% between 1992 and 2004 , even as our production emissions fell. Had the Kyoto agreement measured consumption, not production, the UK would be missing its targets by a very long way. I'm with China. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising because consumption is rising. Unless we address this, we cannot prevent climate breakdown. It doesn't matter where production takes place: the problem is that we are consuming too much. During the panel discussion that followed a screening of the eco film Age of Stupid last week, I asked Lord Stern about this. His answer surprised and delighted me: it represents a dramatic departure from the policy of the government with which he has worked so closely. Here's what he said: It is a point that the Chinese authorities make very clearly and strongly and I think that it's a very sound one. My own view is that we need a combination of the two things. If you move to a different kind of division of labour where another country, in this case China, starts to make things that we might have made, and therefore has that production process in the emissions occurring there, rather than their own country, then we're jointly responsible for that and both parties gain from the division of labour. That's what trade is all about and that's why trade can help development. So my own view is that we probably need something like an average of the two, or a combination of the two. But the logical point China makes is that there is a definite responsibility with the consumer and not just with the producer is a sound one. When Stern talks about these matters, governments listen. If he is prepared to pursue this proposal - that outsourced emissions should be shared between producers and consumers - there's a good chance that it could be adopted at Copenhagen. It is surely the most realistic way to break the deadlock. Monbiot.com Mattel's real toy story: slave labour in sweatshops By ERIC CLARK Last updated at 11:37 16 August 2007 This week Mattel recalled nearly two million Chinese-made toys over concerns they contain excessive levels of lead paint and loose parts. Dirt-cheap labour and a massive expansion in capacity means China makes more than three-quarters of the world's toys, with an export value in excess of £7 billion. But increasingly, there is evidence of inadequate safety standards, poor quality control and slave labour. Here, in an extract from his book about the toy industry, ERIC CLARK reveals the real cost of cheap toys from China. scroll down for more Millions of Chinese factory workers toil through 80 hour-long weeks Read more... Asda recalls 115,000 Chinese-made children's bottles Behind high fences, sprawling factory compounds stretch mile after dusty, depressing mile along the congested roads. Guarded gates control entry and exit. Adjoining many of the blocks are identical concrete boxes - the washing at the chicken wire-covered windows, adding flashes of colour, is the only indication that these are the dormitories for workers. Here in the Pearl River Delta, China, the pollution levels are on average two or three times those permitted in the West. But without places like this, with its swirling red dust, toxic rivers and thick, choking smog that hovers everywhere, stinging eyes and throats, the modern toy industry would not exist. This is the hidden face of the trade where toys are produced for a few pence each by vast numbers of young Chinese people toiling in sweatshop conditions. Between shifts the workers, mostly young women, their faces set in exhaustion, shuffle from building to building. Shifts can last more than 15 hours a day, seven days a week - unlawful but far from uncommon. The dominance of China in toy production is staggering. There are about 8,000 factories employing some three million workers spread over six areas, of which the Pearl River Delta is by far the largest. Virtually all the familiar Western toy names - led by U.S. giants Mattel and Hasbro - are made here. These workers make 80 per cent of all America's toys. In children's picture books, Santa's beaming elves may still be making the toys, but the reality is that for elves we should read migrants - millions of them who have travelled by bus from rural areas up to three days' journey away, part of the biggest movement of people in human history. Since the migration began, more than 50 million have passed through the factories of Guangdong province, where the Pearl River Delta lies. If it is almost impossible to comprehend the scale of the movement of people, it is even more difficult for a Westerner to imagine the daily life of one of these toy workers. Conditions obviously vary, from the acceptable to the unimaginably awful, but it is possible, from a host of reports and interviews conducted well away from factory premises, to construct a composite of the life and working conditions of one of the workers. Li Mei is worn out, so she looks older than her 18 years. Her skin is bad from too little daylight and she has many healing and still-open cuts on her hands. Her neck, chest and forearms are heavily mottled with the raised red patches of allergy caused by toxic chemicals, which she scratches as she speaks. She coughs a lot, and has chronic aches and pains, frequent headaches and blurred vision. All these ailments have appeared during the past two years. Li Mei is a migrant from the rural province of Western Sichuan. At first, she is thrilled to be one of the dagongmei - the working girls - and to leave the hamlet where there are no roads and only limited electricity. But she is frightened because the factories have a reputation as sweatshops. Many return with disfigurements and illnesses. And there was the fate of Li Chunmei. Lin Chunmei, 19, was a 'runner' in the Bainan Toy Factory, rushing stuffed animals from one worker to the next for each step in production.

  • It’s not only about the people who live there, it’s also about the people who design and build the project that helps to embed into the DNA.
  • One Planet Living is showing that green and eco isn’t about socks and sandals, it is possible to have well designed, well constructed buildings, homes or campuses that deliver the reductions needed to enable OPL.
  • SMV will create enough economic activity to replace every one of those jobs on-site, permanently SMV adaptively reuses 700,000 square feet of buildings creating a new town square clustered around a new daily farmer's market The new urbanist plan ensures every resident is no more than a five-minute walk to groceries, restaurants, day care and other amenities offering local, sustainable, and fair trade products and services.
  • That’s the story of Barangaroo A site of unique potential A solid planning foundation. The first great addition, contribution and challenge to 21 st C Sydney Not the completion of Sydney, just the start of the next wave.
  • The waterfront promenades around the public space the coves and headland create a total length waterfront of 2.2 kilometres compared to the concrete straight edge of 1.4 kilometres. The variety of waterfront meeting places will be all new to the citizens of Sydney and those who live well beyond the CBD. 3.5 hectares of additional water space edged by public promenade returned to the people of Sydney.   Public Domain Land 10.7 Ha Public Pier over water 0.51 Ha   11.2 Ha > 50% Public Domain Water 3.5 Ha Total Public Domain 14.7 Ha > 65% Total Area Public Domain and Developer rights 22.3 Ha 100%

  • If B&Q were still sending the same amount of waste to landfill today as they were in 2006, their landfill tax bill alone would be an extra £2.8million
  • If B&Q were using the same amount of fuel today as they were in 2006, their fuel bill would be an additional £4million
  • London 2012 and the London 2012 stakeholders share a commitment to maximise sustainability through the phases of the Games – building the venues and infrastructure, staging the Games themselves and then long into the future.
  • LOCOG Chair Lord Sebastian Coe during the bid in 2005 sustainable development was placed centrally within the London 2012 vision and brand:
  • London 2012 narrowed the original ten One Planet Living principles into five priority themes where they believe they can have the most impact and best contribute to achieving legacy aims each principle can be traced to one of the five themes. London 2012 released their Sustainability Plan, Towards a One Planet 2012 , in November 2007, and the 2 nd Edition was released in Dec 2009 combating climate change; reducing waste; enhancing biodiversity; promoting inclusion; and encouraging healthy living. In order to allow targeting and monitoring, the ODA has sub-divided these five headline themes into 12 objective areas against which to measure progress in constructing the Olympic Park and infrastructure. The Sustainability Plan focuses on five key themes: 1. Climate change:  minimising greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring legacy facilities are able to cope with the impacts of climate change. 2. Waste:  minimising waste at every stage of the project, ensuring no waste is sent to landfill during Games-time, and encouraging the development of new waste processing infrastructure in East London. 3.  Biodiversity:  minimising the impact of the Games on wildlife and their habitats in and around Games venues, leaving a legacy of enhanced habitats where we can eg the Olympic Park. 4.  Inclusion:  Promoting access for all and celebrating the diversity of London and the UK, creating new employment, training and business opportunities. 5.  Healthy living:  Inspiring people across the country to take up sport and develop active, healthy and sustainable lifestyles.
  • launched on 23 January 2007 tasked to independently assure London 2012’s pledge to host the most sustainable Games to date and its legacy. the first body of its type in the history of the Games and the first created in relation to a major infrastructure programme of this size in the world advises the Olympic Board and reports to the public on sustainable development across the entire Games programme, from delivery to staging and legacy Chaired by Shaun McCarthy Reports and reviews available on their website
  • An electronic brokerage service, CompeteFor , to match buyers and suppliers for the huge range of business opportunities related to the Games. Out of a total of 25,000 London 2012 suppliers on CompeteFor, 5,000 are local businesses. More than 3,600 contract opportunities within the London 2012 supply chain have been posted to date. CompeteFor programme to capture 20 per cent of the estimated 75,000 total contract opportunities from the London 2012 supply chain.
  • London 2012 is the first Games organiser to publish a food vision. A total of 14 million meals will be served during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, across 40 locations. London 2012 food vision for the Games is: – To enhance everyone’s experience of the Games by celebrating the great diversity and quality of British food and drink, and delivering it at affordable prices. – To leave a strong, sustainable legacy for London and the UK by nurturing commercial and educational partnerships. five key themes: 1. Food safety and hygiene 2. Choice and balance 3. Food sourcing and supply chains 4. Environmental management 5. Skills and education Included in the vision are the commitment that all dairy products, beef, lamb and poultry must be British. In addition, bananas, tea, coffee and sugar will be Fairtrade and traditional British cheese such as cheddar must be British. Free drinking water will be available at all venues. The Food vision aims to set new standards for catering at UK events, leaving a positive legacy for the future.
