Sochi and Dow will mitigate Games emissions

The Sochi 2014 Organising Committee has announced that it will mitigate the carbon footprint of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from both the organisation of the Games and the travels of spectators and media will be enabled by Dow, the Official Chemistry Company of the Olympic Games and the Official Carbon Partner of Sochi 2014. The company has launched a groundbreaking programme to mitigate Sochi 2014’s carbon footprint by implementing energy-efficient technologies to improve GHG emissions performance in key areas of the Russian economy.

“For the first time in the history of the Olympic Games, the carbon footprint of the event will be mitigated through the use of energy efficient technologies that will result in an overall decrease in greenhouse gas emissions in Russia over the coming years,” said Dmitry Chernyshenko, President of the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee. “It takes innovation expertise, leadership in sustainability and a great sense of partnership to deliver such bold commitment to Games with minimal impact on climate – and we found all these characteristics in Dow. Dow has been key to enable our vision for more sustainable Olympic Games.”

The carbon footprint of the Games includes greenhouse gas emissions associated with the accommodation of athletes, workers and volunteers at the Games, the operation of sports venues during the staging of the competition, and all activities of the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee, starting from the moment when Russia earned the right to host the 2014 Winter Games, in 2007.

Sochi 2014 first committed to address the GHG emissions of the Games during the bidding stage. After winning the bid to organise the first Olympic Winter Games in Russian history, Sochi 2014 worked with a team of Russian and international experts to measure the direct carbon footprint of the Games, estimated to be 360,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions.
