greenhouse gas management at Vancouver 2010 Olympics

David Suzuki's suggestions for greenhouse gas management at Vancouver 2010 Olympics@David Suzuki.org

To undertake a carbon neutral program Vancouver Organizing Committee
for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) will require a comprehensive green-
house gas management plan.

Key elements of this plan would include:
• Determining emissions scope
• Conducting a greenhouse gas emissions inventory
• Engaging partners and sponsors
• A policy for procuring carbon neutral or low carbon products and services
• Reduction strategies
• Procurement of renewable energy certificates and carbon offsets
• Reporting requirements to ensure transparency
• A communications strategy with a strong public engagement component.
