The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games is working to ensure the broad sustainability of the Tokyo 2020 Games, including in environmental, social, and economic terms. As part of that effort, the Committee has made a commitment to making sustainability a consideration in the procurement process during preparations for, as well as the hosting of, the Games. This January, the Committee announced the Fundamental Principles for the Sustainable Sourcing Code (PDF: 143.7 KB).
The Committee’s Sustainable Sourcing Working Group, which has been studying how to give shape to the Sourcing Code since that announcement, has compiled a draft Sustainable Sourcing Code. In addition to setting forth standards and methods that will apply to all goods and services procured by the Committee, the Code defines individual codes for agricultural, livestock and fishery products that take account of sustainability(*). The Working Group is now seeking public comment on the draft for its future study.

(*)In preparing and supplying food and beverages at the Games, it will be necessary to procure agricultural, livestock and fishery products that satisfy the sustainability standards. It will also be necessary to address a variety of nutritional and hygienic considerations as well as religious and dietary practices. A review meeting on the Basic Food Supply Strategy (official name to be determined) plans to study and recommend specific provisions in this area.
