The initiative embraces hundreds of thousands of tons of carbon emissions generated by activities related to the games, including global supply-chain arrangements and travel to and from the site by fans and the media. But the effort doesn't stop there - it's part of a broader three-year effort by Dow to address the carbon footprint of Russian homes, industry and agriculture. Dr. Nicoletta Piccolrovazzi, technology and sustainability director for Dow Olympic Games, joins us to talk about how the program was developed, and what Dow hopes to accomplish on the carbon-mitigation front - not just for Sochi and Russia, but for future Olympics as well. Let the games begin. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
