Sustainable Development In The Olympics: Report From Jones Lang LaSalle

As a key advisor to London, Jones Lang LaSalle considered environmental and economic sustainability in assessing the viability of residential and sports sites and post-Olympics commercial and civic uses for sites in support of London's Olympic bid. The firm has also been named leasing agent of some post-Olympics properties.

"Even as the world's attention is on London and the 2012 Olympics, Rio de Janeiro is planning even greater levels of sustainability for the 2016 Games, including higher levels of renewable energy, extensive bike paths connecting Olympic venues and a goal of 100 percent biodiesel fuel by 2016," Probst said. "The future of the Olympics, like the future of cities themselves, includes an ever-increasing focus on sustainable development."

The green Olympics report is featured on the latest edition of Jones Lang LaSalle's Global Sustainability Perspectives, along with articles such as:
  • Eco Cities: Inspiration and Aspiration; how the "Eco City" vision is influencing the way cities are planned, built, lived and worked in.
  • Investing in Cities: Real Estate and Climate Change;  what real estate investors know and don't know about climate change
  • Paris: The City of Light Goes Electric; an innovative electric vehicle sharing program
  • US: Greener Logistics Patterns; how changes at seaports and inland logistics hubs are helping the United States become more sustainable
  • Introducing Sustainability Transparency;  a new Index tracking transparency of sustainability related issues
