Tokyo 2020’s partnership with the ILO focused on advancing socially responsible labour practices amongst the Games’ delivery partners, including sponsors, suppliers, and licensees.
Using the Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration) as the guiding framework, the partnership included the following activities:
- Raising awareness of the labour dimension of corporate and social responsibility
- Collection and dissemination of good practices amongst delivery partners on socially responsible labour practices
- Organization of technical seminars
- Development and dissemination of tools to support Games’ delivery partners in implementing socially responsible labour practices
The Tokyo 2020 Sustainability Plan and accompanying Sustainable Procurement Code incorporated references to both the ILO MNE Declaration and the ILO Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
