Sustainable Development Targets and Achievements

London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012
                Sustainable Water
                The ODA set a target to achieve a 40% reduction in the demand for
                potable water, compared to current industry practice, for all
                permanent venues
                The Parklands team, in particular, performed exceptionally well with
                highly efficient irrigation water demands through:
                  • planting, particularly drought resistant species;
                  • irrigation infrastructure, eg: drip irrigation; and
                  • control instrumentation, to enable effective irrigation decision
                    making in practice.
                Although the venues achieved between 30 to 50% water efficiency,
                the Parklands team achieved more than 60% efficiency.
London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012
                Zero Waste
                The ODA aimed to achieve 90% re-use and recycling of waste
                through the demolition phase.
                To maximise opportunities for re-use, an inventory of available
                materials was made available to the design teams on the Olympic
                Park. For example:
                 • processed concrete for gabion baskets
                 • reclaimed cobbles and granite kerbstones
                 • yellow stock bricks and sandstone paving
                 • broken roof tiles to create invertebrate habitats
                The ODA has exceeded its target in this area by achieving 98.5%
                re-use and recycling of demolition material.
                 • 400,000 tonnes of concrete, brick and masonry processed into
                   recycled aggregates for use on site.
                 • 20,000 lorry movements saved due to processing and use of
                   recycled materials on site.
London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012
                Land Use and Wildlife
                The ODA aspired to protect and enhance the biodiversity and
                ecology of the Lower Lea Valley. It has transformed former industrial
                land into 100 hectares of parklands to create the largest new urban
                park for more than a century. 45 hectares are being installed for
                legacy, with 25 hectares already installed for Games-time.
                Overall this will include:
                  • 1.8ha of reedbeds suitable for roosting and breeding birds,
                    otters and voles;
                  • 20ha of species-rich grassland suitable for invertebrates, flower
                  • beetles, ground bugs and bees;
                  • five hectares of brownfield habitats including log walls, stone-
                    filled baskets and native tall herbs suitable for lizards, birds,
                    moths and linnets;
                  • 11ha of broadleaved woodland and hedgerows;
                  • 0.9ha of wet woodland – a rare habitat type for amphibians,
                    snakes and birds;
                  • four new ponds, at least 50m2 in size and four wetland and
                    grassland habitats.

  • 15. London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012 Sustainable Water The ODA set a target to achieve a 40% reduction in the demand for potable water, compared to current industry practice, for all permanent venues The Parklands team, in particular, performed exceptionally well with highly efficient irrigation water demands through: • planting, particularly drought resistant species; • irrigation infrastructure, eg: drip irrigation; and • control instrumentation, to enable effective irrigation decision making in practice. Although the venues achieved between 30 to 50% water efficiency, the Parklands team achieved more than 60% efficiency.
  • 16. London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012 Zero Waste The ODA aimed to achieve 90% re-use and recycling of waste through the demolition phase. To maximise opportunities for re-use, an inventory of available materials was made available to the design teams on the Olympic Park. For example: • processed concrete for gabion baskets • reclaimed cobbles and granite kerbstones • yellow stock bricks and sandstone paving • broken roof tiles to create invertebrate habitats The ODA has exceeded its target in this area by achieving 98.5% re-use and recycling of demolition material. • 400,000 tonnes of concrete, brick and masonry processed into recycled aggregates for use on site. • 20,000 lorry movements saved due to processing and use of recycled materials on site.
  • 17. London 2012 Pre Games Sustainability Report, April 2012 Land Use and Wildlife The ODA aspired to protect and enhance the biodiversity and ecology of the Lower Lea Valley. It has transformed former industrial land into 100 hectares of parklands to create the largest new urban park for more than a century. 45 hectares are being installed for legacy, with 25 hectares already installed for Games-time. Overall this will include: • 1.8ha of reedbeds suitable for roosting and breeding birds, otters and voles; • 20ha of species-rich grassland suitable for invertebrates, flower • beetles, ground bugs and bees; • five hectares of brownfield habitats including log walls, stone- filled baskets and native tall herbs suitable for lizards, birds, moths and linnets; • 11ha of broadleaved woodland and hedgerows; • 0.9ha of wet woodland – a rare habitat type for amphibians, snakes and birds; • four new ponds, at least 50m2 in size and four wetland and grassland habitats.
