Sustainability is key for the London 2012 Games. It featured centrally at the heart of the original bid, framed by the concept of “Towards a One Planet Olympics”. BT is a responsible business and we want to lead the way to a more sustainable society. We see London 2012 as a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to inspire and support people in making changes that will help achieve this. Our ambition is to extend theLondon legacy 2012 by inspiring and supporting people to change the way they build, live, learn, work and travel to create a more sustainable society.Through our work on London 2012, we’re pioneering the first ever converged network communications solution for a summer Olympic Games, which offers major benefits in terms of resource and energy efficiency. The lessons we learn through this pioneering work will benefit other customers in the future. We’ve also developed a new methodology to calculate the carbon footprint of our London 2012 solution. This is the first time an exercise like this has been carried out on such a large ICT project, so it will help BT identify how to reduce the environmental impact of our solutions and provide a model for others to follow.We’re creating resources that will bring positive benefits to the local community. For example, we are installing a fibre network within the Olympic Village, making it one of the first beneficiaries of superfast broadband. This will remain in place after the Games, allowing BT Retail and other companies to provide the very latest internet-based services to people who move in once the Olympics has ended. Through our London 2012 education projects, we’re aiming to help to create a generation of young citizens with the skills to communicate and collaborate in ways that bring about positive changes to our society.
