Completion of "High-level Sustainability Plan" and "Fundamental Principles for the Sustainable Sourcing Code"

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games today published the Tokyo 2020 High-level Sustainability Plan and the Fundamental Principles for the Sustainable Sourcing Code.

With a view to developing the content of the High-level Sustainability Plan, the Organising Committee established the Urban Planning and Sustainability Commission in June 2015. This commission is made up of academics and experts from NGOs and other organisations, and is tasked with discussing matters related to the area of Urban Planning and Sustainability. In July 2015, the Organising Committee also set up a Sustainability Discussion Group as an affiliated organisation to consider specific sustainability-related issues. Separate discussions on specific topics with other specialists have also taken place as required.

In order to further develop the Tokyo 2020 Sustainability Plan and the Tokyo 2020 Sustainability Sourcing Code to be finalised by the end of 2016, we will obtain ideas, feedback and useful information from delivery partners*. However, there is also scope to incorporate ideas, suggestions, etc. received from the general public.
* Delivery partners include the Government of Japan, regional/local governments and private entities that provide financial and other support for development of the Plan and delivery of the Games.
