Assuring the London 2012 Games was an extraordinary experience for everyone involved in the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012.

It was truly a game-changer for international events – surpassing all previous Games in delivering sustainability outcomes at every level. East London has benefited from solid investment leading up to the Games and all eyes are now on the London Legacy Development Corporation and the host boroughs in delivery of a long-term legacy for the people of East London.

We like to think that the Commission made a real difference – being there and saying the things that needed to be said to keep the programme on track, relevant and keeping faith with London 2012’s overarching sustainability goals.
