Will Brazil use the Olympics to show how environmentally friendly they are?

    Yes; Brazil and the city of Rio seem intent on proving their ability to run the Olympics as an eco-friendly event. Trees are being planted in Pedra Branca park as part of the “Carbon Zero 2016” campaign, which aims to fully erase the carbon footprint of the city’s Olympic bid team. That only accounts for the bid – not the entire Olympics – but it is a positive gesture. Also as part of their bid, Brazil committed to plant a total of three million trees between now and the start of the games, mostly in Rio’s Tijuca Forest national park. Other environmental plans for the Rio Olympics should become clear over the next few years. If this most recent Olympic bid process is any indication, sustainability will be a critical issue for any country or city that wishes to host an international sporting event from now on.
