DuPont donates emission credits to 2002 Winter Olympic Games

DuPont has donated emission reduction credits for carbon dioxide to the Salt Lake Organizing Committee in Utah for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

The donation has helped SLOC reach its goal of zero emissions for the Salt Lake City (Utah) Games.

The SLOC environment department joined forces with DuPont, Clean Air Conservancy, the Leonardo Academy and O2Blue to help improve air quality through the Olympic Cleaner and Greener program. Olympic Cleaner and Greener quantifies all forms of energy used during the Games including the Torch Relay, transportation and operations. The program then solicits donations of emission reduction credits from local and national companies to offset the emissions produced by hosting the Games.

"SLOC's environment program has adopted a zero waste/zero emissions goal for Games-time," said Diane Conrad Gleason, SLOC's environment program director. "The Cleaner and Greener program has helped us reach one of our aggressive conservation goals for the 2002 Games."

Dave Findlay, global business director for emissions trading at DuPont, said: "DuPont is pleased to donate emission credits to the Salt Lake Games. SLOC's goal of being the greenest Games ever is admirable and we are glad that we are able to help."

DuPont donated enough emission credits of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, to finally achieve the zero emissions goal for the Games.
