Green Olympics' plans set to be unveiled

Plans aimed at making the London 2012 Olympics a sustainability showcase are being unveiled today.

The plans - Towards A One Planet 2012 - mark out London 2012's sustainability pledges through the preparation, construction, staging and legacy of the Games.

Organisers have said that carbon emissions from the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, will be minimised through walking, cycling and use of public transport, and 90 per cent of demolition material will be recycled.

In January, then-Prime Minister Tony Blair said it will be the greenest ever.
