Successful Beijing Winter Olympics Backed by Standards


The Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games in February achieved a big success as the most high-tech Winter Games with the most spectators, which brought exciting and inspiring moments to the audience around the world despite the gloom caused by COVID-19 pandemic.


With the truly exceptional Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games, we welcome China as a winter sport country, said Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in his address at the closing ceremony.


Then, how the Beijing 2022 Games fuel the winter sports industry and bring economic growth in China as well as expand influence around the world? How standards provide support and help realize a green, low-carbon, sustainable Winter Olympics? You can find the answers in the SPECIAL REPORT column.


For instance, the Beijing 2022 Sustainability Management System was established as an effective means to promote sustainability in the Beijing 2022 Games. It is the first of its kind in China certified by SGS. And low-carbon standards and low-carbon management accounting standards and green building standards were implemented in the Beijing 2022 Games.


The Games were greatly praised by experts and athletes. "Perhaps it is the highest quality of rebroadcasting fundamental infrastructure than any other Olympic Games that I have experienced,"said Yiannis Exarchos, CEO of Olympic Broadcasting Services. "They have honestly done a stellar job with the whole COVID protocol," American freeskier Aaron Blunck said at a press conference.


Except for the fruitful Winter Olympics, the annual national standardization work conference was heldin January, making an overall plan for this year's standardization work. You can find the priorities of China's work in this field in the SPOTLIGHT column, which were translated based on the Chinese document released by SAC.


Starting with two big, successful events in the whole year, one for winter sports, the other for standardization, we believe that more achievements will be made as long as we set right goals and take actions.
