In its Post-Games review, the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee urged ministers to ensure lessons were learned and shared. The Committee argues that the event had demonstrated that it was ‘possible for government departments to work together and with other bodies effectively to deliver complex programmes’. Among the factors the committee singled out as contributing to the success were detailed planning, continuity of senior staff and strict project and risk management. Creating specific bodies with clearly defined goals, such as the Olympic Delivery Authority and the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games was also good practice.

The Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 closes at the end of March 2013 after seven years work. The Commission’s work is available to all who might want or need to review the sustainability successes and lessons learnt from the London 2012 Games via its website which will continue at its current address www.cslondon.org.  This includes reports, recommendations, news, videos, and assurance statements and media releases. The final report, Making a difference, focuses on where the sustainability gains made by London 2012 have influenced more widely across the construction and development industry, the events sector,  in ethical procurement and finally, in strategic assurance of sustainability. The Commission’s findings point to two main factors holding back widespread adoption of sustainable practice in the UK: firstly, slowness in government action in embedding sustainability in government procurement; and secondly, the need for more independent oversight to ensure that sustainability targets in all sectors are met. The Commission has recommended the Government revisit advice to embed sustainability into the construction sector, and that major projects open themselves up to independent scrutiny of their sustainability commitments.
