    Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games high level sustainability plan 2 Dec 2016

    The Olympic and Paralympic Games are one of the world's largest sports events, and the delivery of the Games has more wide-ranging impacts than we could imagine, not on the field of sports alone, but also on society, the economy and other fields. The Games' influence will go beyond Tokyo, the Host City, extending across Japan and the world. Given the growing momentum for efforts to project the global environment, it is vital that these concerns are fully addressed in the preparations for the delivery of the Olympics and Paralympic Games.
