Sustainability a key issue at Tokyo Olympics 2020
With Covid around, this year’s summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, looked rather different with less spectators and a much simpler opening ceremony.
This year’s games also took sustainability into account with many wonderful innovations to reuse and recycle as well as cut emissions resulting in a smaller carbon footprint! Various recycled materials were used to manufacture the torches, furniture, upgrades of the stadia and the medals. Only LED lights, electric cars and hydropower are being used at the various venues.
The Sustainability Concept of the Tokyo 2020 Games
The aim is to ensure that the positive impacts of the Tokyo 2020 Games will extend far beyond the parameters of Tokyo, the host city, to encompass the whole of Japan and the world.
