The David Suzuki Foundation, a science-based Canadian environmental organization, working to protect the balance of nature and quality of life, has awarded VANOC with a bronze medal for their efforts to reduce the Winter Olympic’s climate impact. Energy efficient venues and adoption of alternative energy sources were noted among Vancouver 2010’s achievements. However, the foundation believes that the Olympic organizers could have done better in promoting their environmentally-friendly initiatives as well as invested money in public transportation solutions rather than in upgrading highways.
