Caux Round Table Japan released a request on Sustainability of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games
In 2020, the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held. We are now living in the context where even two planets will not be enough to sustain our activities by 2050 unless we change our lifestyles, and as a negative aspect of globalization disparity and poverty are expanding every year. Thus, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will be held under these conditions, should contribute to improvement of these circumstances.
Caux Round Table Japan(CRT Japan) requests the following influential organizations to gain the understanding of sustainable events, develop plans and carry out events based on that understanding for achievement of the sustainable Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Thus, CRT Japan released the “Request on Sustainability of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games” on 20 March 2015. CRT Japan also promises to contribute toward the achievement together.
- The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games
- The International Olympic Committee and the Japanese Olympic Committee
- The International Paralympic Committee and the Japanese Paralympic Committee
