The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (Locog) have published draft sustainability policies, which will be encompassed in a London 2012 overarching scheme.

An ODA spokesperson added: "They'll need to produce their own policies addressing the issues that must be compatible with our policy."
