On the occasion of the World Conference on Sport and the Environment starting
today in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for
the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) announced a target to
neutralize up to 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from the Games. To
meet this target, VANOC is in advanced sponsorship negotiations with carbon
offset management companies to create a unique 2010 carbon offset portfolio
that will showcase climate change solutions.
