Public Consultation on Draft Sustainable Sourcing Policy for Tokyo 2020
Report, 25 August 2015
Caux Round Table Japan (CRT-Japan) and the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) are partnering to help galvanise respect for human rights as part of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The two organisations have prepared a Draft Sustainable Sourcing Policy for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and welcome comments before submitting a final version to the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (TOCOG) and encouraging them to adopt it as their own.
CRT-Japan and IHRB recently held a similar public consultation for a proposed Human Rights Statement.
CRT-Japan and IHRB believe the publication, and subsequent implementation, of a Sustainable Sourcing Code by TOCOG that takes account of social and human rights issues, will provide the necessary starting point towards ensuring that purchasing for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games is conducted in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner.
