This Presentation Is South Africa taking greening seriously in hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup? What is Green Goal 2010? What are the principles and targets that the OC and Host Cities have set? What are the greening projects that the Host Cities are implementing? Two groups discuss how the packaging industry can be involved.
Green Olympics Setting Standards The International Olympic Committee is resolved to ensure that the environment becomes the third dimension of Olympicism, the first and second being sport and culture. Juan Antonio Samaranch, Ex-IOC-President
2006 FIFA World Cup Organisers of the FIFA 2006 World Cup in Germany initiated the Green Goal programme to give effect to HCA requirements of environmental protection FIFA / LOC adopted Green Goal Programme for FIFA 2010 World Cup
Event Greening Event greening now an integral part of the hosting of major international events No international framework as yet – event specific UNEP: Sport and Environment Programme playing coordinating role; event greening manuals available
FIFA 2010 World Cup Host City Agreement Clause 6.7: Environmental Protection The Host City must carry out obligations in terms of HCA in a manner which : embraces the concept of sustainable development complies with applicable environmental legislation promotes the protection of the environment
What is Green Goal? Green Goal is the environmental protection project of the FIFA World Cup. The 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany was the first time that FIFA aimed to meet measurable environmental protection targets, established for waste, transportation, energy and water that significantly reduced the environmental impact of the event
Greening Principles for 2010 The overarching principle for the event will be sustainability: By ensuring sustainable management of all resources used we will meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs.
Greening Principles for 2010 Principle 1: Sustainable Procurement Principle 2: Sustainable Construction Principle 3: Waste Management (Avoidance, Reduction, Re-use/ Recycling) Principle 4: Water Management Principle 5: Energy Efficiency Principle 6: Sustainable Transport Principle 7: Air Quality Management Principle 8: Biodiversity Conservation Principle 9: Social Development Principle 10: Sustainable Tourism Principle 11: Participation, Communication, Education/Public Awareness Principle 12: Monitoring and Evaluation Principle 13: Leaving a Positive Greening Legacy

Sustainable Waste Management Strategy -Event Venues -Inputs to greater Durban Waste Management Plan for 2010 event period Due for completion October 2009
Nelson Mandela Bay Renewable Energy - Solar Water Heating - 1000 units installed in low income houses - Provision of creches in Motherwell - Expected large scale roll-out of the sale of systems to private homes to start this year (100 000 over 5 years => 60 MW) Project run by CEF Sustainability
Nelson Mandela Bay Solid waste to energy (landfill gas) (Koedoeskloof and Arlington Waste Disposal Sites) EIA in progress
Water Minimise the use of potable water and promote the conservation of water resources Green Point Stadium water efficient technologies –Rainwater harvesting off the roof –Water saving taps –Dual flush toilets in VIP areas –Flush urinals Spring water for irrigation of Green Point Common –Replacing 580 000 k/l p.a. potable water for irrigation –Detail design underway
Integrated Waste Management Operational waste minimisation - Waste avoidance No hand-outs at gates Avoid unnecessary packaging Reusable packaging and materials (e.g. plastic crates vs cardboard) Large condiment dispensers vs single servings - Waste minimisation Minimise packaging e.g. wrapping of vuvus and T- shirts Cup concept – commemorative cup
Integrated Waste Management Waste recycling 20% waste diversion target (LOC policy) 2 or 4 bin system at Stadium, Fan Fest and PVAs 2 new mini-multi-use recycling facilities under construction in HC CT Labeling and signage Monitoring using integrated event monitoring tool Integrated communication
Confederations Cup Observations Waste separation at source at 3 of the 4 stadia Coca Coca has recognised need to recycle PET bottles Bins were allocated outside and inside the stadium and were clearly marked for dry waste and wet waste separation Volunteers were responsible for checking the bins Providing oversight on separation of waste Watching bins to emptied at intervals The spectator area was clean with only little waste lying around Most bins had plastic bin-liners
Confederations Cup Observations Bins for five different waste streams created confusion amongst spectators At the gates clearly marked bins were placed for waste separation. However, officials did not seem to be separating waste Beer was served in corn starch plastic cups which were carelessly thrown on the floor when they were empty. Mass generation of waste from PET and glass beer bottles Bins did not have plastic liners. The waste collectors had to remove waste from bins into plastic bags and thereafter load on to truck
Confederations Cup Observations LOC cleansing contractor did not adhere to waste separation arrangements in all cases Some bins had no stickers and in some stadia stickers were photocopies stuck on the bins with sticky tape Some bins were not in the right position => no map for the stadium? Condiment containers were too small, they used normal tomato ketchup containers and not the big ones Cardboards were thrown everywhere=>solution: bigger containers for cardboards and boxes Many Park-and Ride areas had no waste bins at all
Cup Concept Cup Concept refers to a reusable / recyclable commemorative beverage cup that can be sold on a deposit system Germany 2006 – Polypropylene cups were sold on deposit system at 1 – Returned cups were washed and reused – FIFA appointed a service provider – Cup Concept – More than 80% of Coke branded cups were taken home South Africa 2010 – No service provider appointed by FIFA – Host cities can develop own cup concept for Fan Fest – Prelim research shows that cup concept can work with recyclable PP cup – i.e. returned cups are recycled – no waste to landfill. – Cup graphics very important to improve commemorative value (in- mode labeling or screen printing)
Nelson Mandela Bay Green Goal branding of recycling bins and waste minimization signage Purchase of recycling bins Establishment of Recycling/Drop off Centres Kwamagxaki Recycling Centre and Motherwell Buy Back Centre Blue Horizon Bay Community Recycling Project
Transport, mobility and access Promote public transport - 50% fans to the stadium by public transport - New infrastructure – IRT and Rail, Gautrain Promotion through park and ride, additional services, additional safety and security Promote NMT - New infrastructure - Park and walk - Fan Walk

Communication Using the popularity of a large sporting event for the sensitization of broader sections of the population GG has the potential to reach a broad cross section of the public and make an important contribution to the promotion of environmental awareness. Experience in Germany confirmed that this great opportunity had not been fully exploited.
Plastics Europe promoted the idea of a climate-compatible World Cup at a reception in Brussels at the end of May 2006, attended by 250 staff of the European Parliament and the European Commission. The guests had the opportunity to test their penalty-taking skills against professional players: Jean-Marie Pfaff, former goalkeeper with Bayern Munich and Davino Verhulst, goalkeeper with KSK Beveren. Each successful penalty kick counted for a symbolic tonne of CO, which was offset by climate protection projects.
Projects Greening Soweto, planting 200 000 trees Rehabilitation of Klipspruit River and catchment Green stadiums, recycling, water and energy saving programmes Green 50 soccer fields across the City (R500 00 to R1m per field) Waste collection, recycling Rea Vaya, environmentally friendly bus rapid transit system GreenStaySA
Nelson Mandela Bay Communication - Educational Bus - Mobile Exhibition Unit - Bus fitted to function as a mobile classroom - Green Goal short films - Anti littering and waste recycling campaign and waste exchange website
The Social Legacy Boost national pride and confidence and challenge and dispel Afro-pessimism. Infrastructure as a catalyst - new facilities provide new opportunities for social interaction that could result in a social legacy e.g. Stadia and Public Transport Investment in poorer areas. Upgrade, city beautification and focused maintenance as legacy Improved service delivery – investment in services and equipment for disaster management, law enforcement and metro police
The Social Legacy Football for Hope centres as a model of how infrastructure can catalyse social programs Arts and culture programme – showcase talent, culture and history, create an African World Cup Volunteers – Opportunity to participate, receive training, service to the community Health and food safety -2010 master plan developed Protection of vulnerable groups - Children, commercial sex workers, street people
