Olga Parkes, Dr Paola Lettieri and Prof David Bogle (Chemical Engineering): Towards Defining A Quantitative Methodology to Enhance the Sustainability Performance of Major International Events.
At present, companies all over the world include sustainable development in their strategic management plans. Many Sustainability Assessment (SA) tools are being developed to assist with evaluation of various projects, industrial processes and enterprises. The choice of SA tool depends on the scope and nature of a project. Large international events such as the Olympic Games are unique projects and sustainability assessment of such mega-events is a complex task. It requires careful consideration of interactions and trade-offs between environmental, social and economic indicators of each phase of the project. This poster provides the results of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study carried out to compare various technologies of energy production from waste generated at the London Olympic Park. The results of the LCA study identify the most feasible solutions and the objective functions for future optimisation of alternative design options.
