Tokyo-2020 sustainability programme

The Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 (Tokyo 2020) has published the second version of its Sustainability Plan and the Plan’s guiding principle. This is the final strategic plan that will govern sustainability activities for the Tokyo 2020 Games. The guiding principle is: “Be better, together – for the planet and the people”, and Tokyo 2020 not only aims to ensure sustainable delivery of the Games, but also hopes to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Related goals, targets and measures are specified in the Plan under five themes: Climate Change; Resource Management; Natural Environment and Biodiversity; Consideration of Human Rights, Labour and Fair Business Practices; and Involvement, Cooperation and Communications (Engagement).

ANOC has partnered with RIOU for six years as part of its commitment to delivering the best possible service to its NOCs, with the MSA providing opportunities for its NOCs to learn from international best practice.
