Human Rights, Labour and Fair Business Practices

Celebrating diversity: Inspiring inclusive Games for everyone

The Tokyo 2020 Games are incorporating diversity and inclusion (D&I) into every aspect of Games preparation and operation to respect the human rights of all people involved with the Games.
Tokyo 2020 will also prepare for and operate the Games in accordance with the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
Furthermore, Tokyo 2020 strives to ensure fair business practices free of corruption or instances of anti-competition.

Basic approach to Human Rights, Labour and Fair Business Practices

  • In accordance with the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, we have set forth a clear policy in the Sustainability Plan Version 2 for acting responsibly to respect human rights for all those involved with the Tokyo 2020 Games, with no tolerance against any discrimination.
  • We identified three key areas with the potential to cause human rights risks in the course of activities. These are day-to-day work/workplaces, during the Games/in events venues, and sourcing/supply chain, and we are investigating the operation or introduction of a system to respond to these risk areas.
  • We are looking into introducing and operating a reporting desk or consultation desk (grievance mechanism).

Major activities

  • Accordance with the UN’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
