London 2012


London 2012 - sustainability partnerAs well as being the official communications service partner to London 2012, BT is also one of six Sustainability Partners working with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) to help make the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games the most sustainable Games ever. We are focussing our efforts in two key areas – delivering a sustainable communications technology solution for the Games and creating lasting social and economic benefits.

Education is very important to BT. A key part of our Corporate Responsibility strategy is to work with our partners to promote more effective communication and collaboration, especially among young people, their parents and teachers.

We believe there is a great opportunity to harness the excitement building ahead of London 2012 by encouraging people to get involved in education projects that develop communications skills which can be used to help them achieve goals that are important in their lives.

We want to use London 2012 as a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to motivate young people and the adults who look after them through our projects.
