Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary General and Executive Director, UN Environment Programme (UNEP), upon seeing the Olympic Park said, “I witnessed the thoughtful approach to bringing sustainability issues into the planning and development of a mass scale event. Efforts such as the greening of the supply chain, regeneration of an inner city area and bringing energy efficiency measures to local homes, can build the confidence to wider society that sustainability is not theory but infinitely do-able with the policies and technologies available today not tomorrow. Once the Games are over, I look forward to analysing the achievements and lessons learned.”
