The pre competition report on sustainable development of Beijing Winter Olympic Games released Bach’s praise

the Shougang ski jump platform located in Shijingshan District, Beijing has successfully completed the first stage of snow making. Beijing, January 13 (Xinhua) the State Information Office held a press conference on the green winter Olympics and sustainable development of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and the winter Paralympic Games on January 13, and the pre competition report on sustainable development of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games was released at the meeting. Li Sen, director of the overall planning department of the Beijing Winter Olympic Organizing Committee, said that this report summarizes the phased achievements of sustainable development at the current stage of the Winter Olympic Games. “The International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee attach great importance to and highly evaluate the release of this sustainable development report.”

Li Sen said that sustainable development is China’s national strategy and one of the three themes of the Olympic 2020 agenda. Since its preparation, the Beijing Winter Olympic Organizing Committee has fully implemented the concept of “green, sharing, openness and integrity”, jointly studied and formulated the sustainability plan for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games and winter Paralympic Games with the Beijing municipal government, the Hebei provincial government and relevant parties, and determined the vision of “sustainability and the future”, And the goal of “creating a new model of Olympic Games and regional sustainable development”. It has built a working framework from three aspects: positive environmental impact, new regional development and better life, including 12 actions, 37 tasks and 119 specific measures

“over the past six years, we have worked hard to implement the concept of Green Olympics in the whole process of the preparation, and closely combined the preparation with urban and regional development, promoted regional ecological environment improvement, economic development and social progress, and formed a number of sustainable achievements.”

Li Sen summarized the results into the following five aspects:

first, establish a sustainable management system. The preparation of the Winter Olympic Games is a complex systematic project, which needs standardized and systematic management. This is the first time in Olympic history that the three international standards of “sustainable management system for large-scale activities, environmental management system and social responsibility guide” have been integrated, and the sustainable management system of Beijing Winter Olympic Organizing Committee has been established. This system is used to effectively manage the sustainable work of major venues and more than 50 business areas

Second, build an ecological competition area. In view of the fact that snow projects are mainly distributed in mountainous areas, measures are taken to reduce the impact on the environment from the design source. Before the planning and design, the plant background survey was carried out, the environmental impact assessment was carried out, and the protection measures were determined from the aspects of avoidance, mitigation, reconstruction and compensation. Protect the plants in the competition area through local, near ground and ex situ measures, reduce the impact on the animals in the competition area by setting up animal channels, laying artificial bird nests, standardizing construction behavior and other measures, and carry out ecological restoration at the same time. Collect, store and recycle rainwater and snowmelt water in various ways to make efficient use of water resources. Through various measures, the green mountains and green waters in the competition area were guarded, and the goal of “mountain forest venues and ecological Winter Olympics” was realized

Third, strictly implement low-carbon management. Make full use of Beijing Olympic venues to reduce carbon emissions from the source. Low carbon venues have been built. All venues have met the green building standards. Four ice venues have used new carbon dioxide refrigerants, built an ultra-low energy consumption demonstration project of more than 50000 square meters, fully used low-carbon energy, and used green electricity for 100% of the conventional energy of all venues during the games. Build a low-carbon transportation system, and energy-saving and clean energy vehicles account for more than 80% of race time vehicles. On this basis, actively expand carbon compensation channels. The governments of Beijing and Zhangjiakou donated forestry carbon sinks to the Beijing Winter Olympics. PetroChina, State Grid and Three Gorges group also sponsored carbon neutralization products for the Beijing Winter Olympics. Through these measures, the Beijing Winter Olympics will fully realize carbon neutralization

Fourth, promote urban and regional development. The six years since the preparation of the Beijing Winter Olympics are also a period of rapid development in Beijing and Zhangjiakou. The preparation of the Winter Olympics has played a positive role in promoting the development of the two places. The Beijing Zhangjiakou high-speed railway and Beijing Lijiang expressway have been completed and opened to traffic, the road network system has been improved, and the traffic facilities have been connected; The two places have cooperated to control desertification, water and gas, significantly improved the regional environment, and realized joint prevention and treatment of the regional environment; The layout of basic public facilities has been accelerated, and the overall level of public services has been improved, realizing the co construction and sharing of public services. A number of influential enterprises have settled in Yanqing and Zhangjiakou. The development of ice and snow, green energy and other industries has accelerated, realizing complementary and mutual promotion of industrial development. Shougang will build a “new landmark of urban rejuvenation”, Yanqing will build a “most beautiful winter Olympic city”, and Zhangjiakou will build a “Asian ice and snow tourism destination”. These three regions have become a model for the Winter Olympics to promote high-quality urban development

fifth, the results of the preparation benefit the people. Improving people’s quality of life is not only an important content of sustainable development, but also the due meaning of the preparation of the Winter Olympic Games. Over the past six years, taking advantage of the development opportunities brought by the Winter Olympic Games, the infrastructure and service facilities in Beijing and Zhangzhou have been accelerated, the public service level has been comprehensively improved, the development of ice and snow and related industries has brought more employment to the people, people’s life is more convenient, development opportunities are more abundant, people’s sense of happiness and gain are increasing, and the popularization and development of ice and snow sports has driven the national fitness, Shape a healthy lifestyle, improve accessibility, accelerate the comprehensive development of an inclusive society, and promote the better integration of persons with disabilities into society; Volunteer service has become a common practice and improved the civilization of the whole society

the pre competition report on sustainable development of Beijing Winter Olympic Games was also released on the day of the press conference. Li Sen said that the report summarizes the phased achievements of sustainable development at the current stage of the Winter Olympic Games. “The International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee attach great importance to and highly evaluate the release of this sustainable development report. President Bach and President Parsons produced congratulatory videos respectively.” (end)
