00074313 - Greening 2014 Sochi Olympics: A Strategy and Action Plan for the Greening Legacy, Medium-sized Project


The project aims at addressing climate change mitigation through greening a large international event in Russia the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic games. The project Objective is to produce a Greening Strategy and Action Plan for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The project will develop greening recommendations and action plans in six specific sectors. By introducing an early Climate Change planning the project will help setting up a "carbon neutral" event and unleash the potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction during the preparation to and conduction of the Sochi Olympic games. In doing so the MSP project will produce an integrated programmatic approach (a set of project proposals) for the Greening of Sochi Olympics.

Expected Outcomes:

Outcome 1 Green building standards: An Action Program for introducing green standards for Sochi Olympics construction and further replication.

Outcome 2 Energy efficiency and power planning: Integrated Strategy and Action Plan for energy efficiency.

Outcome 3 Renewable energy technologies: Reducing GHG emissions through increased application of renewable energy technologies at 2014 Olympics.

Outcome 4 Low carbon transport: An integrated strategy and action plan for reducing GHG emissions from transport during preparations and convening of the Olympics.

Outcome 5 Carbon offsets: Sochi Carbon Offsets Programme

Outcome 6 Public awareness and advocacy strategy: A comprehensive public awareness, advocacy and outreach program.

More information about the Project and its implementation stage can be found on the Project web-site.
