Colorado green leaders question Olympic bid in wake of Sochi costs, impacts - Rocky Mountain Post, 13 Feb 2014 [cached]
Asked about the criteria for a 2026 Colorado winter bid and the degree to which environmental impacts will be considered, IOC media relations manager Sandrine Tonge said, "The bidding process for the 2026 games has not started yet, so it would be premature for the IOC to comment on it. Tonge referred additional questions about 2026 to the USOC.
"The Sochi 2014 Games are believed to be the first global sports event in Russia to have taken environmental concerns and the principles of sustainability into consideration," Tonge said. "In regard to land compensation, 20,000 hectares [or nearly 50,000 acres] of land will be added to [Sochi] National Park to compensate for land used during the construction of games venues."
One of the factors that worked against the original bid for the 1976 Denver Olympics was the passage in 1969 of the National Environmental Policy Act creating more stringent environmental protections and making it far more difficult to build Olympic infrastructure on public lands.
Tonge did not address questions about the arrest and long-term jailing of Russian ecologists or the criticism by athletes of the IOC's selection of warmer coastal regions such as Vancouver and Sochi, where more snowmaking is often required, or snow has to be stored or transported at great expense. However, she did point out other signs of progress in Russia as a result of the games.
"Green building standards have been created for the first time in Russia, and these are expected to be in use nationwide following the games," Tonge said. "For the first time in the history of the Olympic Games, Sochi 2014 will voluntarily mitigate not only its own carbon footprint, but also that of the flights of athletes, spectators and media representatives."
The mitigation of greenhouse gases, according to Tonge, is being "enabled" by the official chemistry company of the games, Dow Chemical.
