During its visit from 1 – 4 March 2011, the Evaluation Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has examined Munich’s bid, and in this context also the subject area of “environment and sustainability” with regard to its viability.

Boris Schwartz, head of Environment and Sustainability of the Munich 2018 Bid Committee, on the most important objectives: “We have three core ideas: 1. Saving energy by improving efficiency. 2. Avoiding emissions by using regenerative energy. 3. Compensating for what finally remains in terms of burdens.”

As a member of the Expert Group on evaluating compensation measures, Martin Ewald from Allianz Climate Solutions comments on the three step plan: “In practical terms, this means that activities which are as energy efficient as possible should be combined with high quality local and international compensation projects in the field of renewable energy.”

The next “Living Bid Book” will be published on the subject of “Security”.
