Sustainability

The Olympic and Paralympic Games are the world's largest sports events, and the delivery of the Games has a much wider-ranging impact than most people can imagine. This impact is not limited to sport, but also on society, the economy and the environment. We aim to ensure that the influence of the Tokyo 2020 Games will extend far beyond the parameters of Tokyo, the Host City, to encompass the whole of Japan and the wider world.
Given the growing global focus on sustainability, it is vital that these concerns are fully addressed in the preparations for the delivery of the Olympic and Paralympic Games by implementing the Tokyo 2020 Sustainability Plan.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games Sustainability Plan Version 1

This plan illustrates the directions, the objectives and the examples of implemented measures for the Games preparations / operations with consideration for sustainability, which could be the reliable reference for the Games-related entities. Tokyo 2020 will continue to work on incorporating various points of views into this plan through discussions with a variety of delivery partners to go further into detail of and improve the plan.

Detailed target set up in figures and specific division of roles will be embodied in “Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games Sustainability Plan Version 2” to be developed later.

Tokyo 2020 High-level Sustainability Plan

The Tokyo 2020 High-level Sustainability Plan outlines the basic approach to be adopted to ensure sustainability is integrated in Games planning and operations, and the overall direction of the plan. In addition, the High-level Sustainability Plan will provide a basis for ensuring that sustainability is considered from the planning stage of the Games while collecting ideas, opinions and information from various delivery partners*.

Delivery partners include the Government of Japan, regional/local governments and private entities that provide financial and other support for the development of the Plan and delivery of the Games.
