“The Olympic and Paralympic Movement and Sustainability

The Olympic and Paralympic Games are among the world’s largest sporting events. This impact is not limited to sport, but also on society, the economy and the environment. We aim to ensure that the positive impacts of the Tokyo 2020 Games will extend far beyond the parameters of Tokyo, the Host City, to encompass the whole of Japan and the world.
The United Nations adopted “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, which specified that “Sport is also an important enabler of sustainable development.”

The Sustainability Concept of the Tokyo 2020 Games

Tokyo 2020 set the sustainability concept of the Games as “Be better, together – For the planet and the people”. We will take the initiative to meet its responsibility to deliver sustainable Games and showcase solution models of global sustainability challenges to people in Japan and around the world.
We aim to contribute to the realisation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the delivery of the Games. We are also committed to make sure the meaning of the Tokyo 2020 Games’ concepts and legacies will be passed on to future Olympic/Paralympic Games and various activities and initiatives throughout Japan and the world.

Message for The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace

The International Day of Sport for Development and Peace is an annual celebration of the power of sport to drive social change and community development and to foster peace and understanding.
Creating a historical link to the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, the United Nations General Assembly in 2013 declared 6 April as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.
Celebrating the day in 2019, a special event was held at the UN Headquarters on 3 April at which a video message was delivered by Koji Murofushi, Sports Director for the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, introducing Tokyo 2020’s commitment to sustainability and the contribution to SDGs.

Main Themes of Sustainability and Sustainable Sourcing Code

The Tokyo 2020 Games set five main sustainability themes, which Tokyo 2020, the Tokyo Metroploitan Government, the Government of Japan and other delivery partners work on in preparations for and operations of the Games.
In addition, Tokyo 2020 formulated the Tokyo 2020 Sustainable Sourcing Code as a tool to ensure sustainability throughout the supply chains of products and services Tokyo 2020 procures as well as licensed products.

We will promote energy savings and use of renewable energy as much as possible “Towards Zero Carbon”.

Through 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle), we aim to “Zero Wasting”.

We will contribute to the realization of “City within Nature/Nature within the City”.

We will operate the Games in accordance with the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Through the participation and collaboration of entire society, we will create the Games which open to everyone.

We have devised the Sustainable Sourcing Code for products and services to be procured as well as licensed products.


We will offset the unavoidable CO2 emissions, by reduction at other places that satisfy certain conditions.
