Part of the work WRAP will carry out to support the London 2012 Olympic Games is to develop tools and best practice to improve the performance of the UK events sector and its supply chain. The main outcome of the legacy work will be capturing information and data that enables us to communicate what worked, what didn’t and why. Through this knowledge base, we will be able to identify what lessons are relevant to other events in the UK and beyond and effectively communicate these. These lessons will not be limited to major sporting events and will cover commercial and cultural events as well.
The objective of this piece of work is to produce four legacy transfer case studies across packaging, approach to recycling at events, communications messaging and re-use in events that will be included in a suite of learning materials. This suite of learning materials will form part of the wider Olympics legacy following the delivery of the London 2012 Games; that will enable other UK and international events to understand how to deliver, measure and report more effectively on managing materials and resources.
