London 2012 Sustainability Plan Progress Report Card 2008

This report card provides a comprehensive account of progress on the commitments and challenges detailed in the London 2012 Sustainability Plan (published November 2007). The structure follows the same chapter headings as in the accompanying update report. The four left hand columns provide a page reference to where each commitment occurs in the original plan; a sub-heading to highlight key topics; a description of each commitment; and which organisations are leading the work. For purposes of clarity and to avoid repetition, we have grouped related commitments. Some have been moved into the new section on cross-cutting issues, but the page reference will point you back to the correct part of the original plan. In a few case there are current activities not traceable to the plan and these are marked ‘new 2008’.

The three right hand columns set out how we are tracking progress, what we have achieved during 2008 and future milestones and activities. Inevitably there are some items which are still in development and where possible we have indicated broad timelines for when these activities will go live. This is a first attempt at reporting against the entire Sustainability Plan and during the coming year we will be reviewing the structure and format. We want to provide as full an account as possible in a clear and concise way. We welcome feedback from interested stakeholders to suggest how we might best improve our approach.
