The Olympic Delivery Authority wants to ensure to meet the highest environmental and social standards for the PVC materials.
For example temporary parts same as Roofing covers of the Olympic Stadium, the Water Polo Arena and the Royal Artillery Barracks will be deconstructed and a part will be recycled in the Vinyloop process.

The Olympic Delivery Authority after initially refusing PVC as material has reviewed its decision and develops a policy for the use of PVC.
The PVC policy has focused attention on the use of PVC across the project and highlighted that the functional properties of PVC make it the most suitable material in certain conditions.
Environmental and social impacts across the whole life cycle play a key role, with e.g. the rate for recycling or re-use and the percentage of recycled content.
