Some interesting take on Sustainability and the Olympics.
The Vancouver Organizing Committee (VANOC) is aiming at achieving a carbon neutral direct footprint. Helping them in this path are many resorts in Canada, as for instance the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. In this hotel, you will a Sempa Power Hybrid Heating system - reducing annual energy costs by more than $250,000 and greenhouse gas emissions by over 40%.
Interesting to note that all of the saved emissions credits were then donated to VANOC.
