To IOC President Bach and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Organising Committee,
I am extremely concerned about the Olympics’ continued exploitation of rainforests for the construction of Olympic venues in Tokyo. There is nothing sustainable about sourcing wood from the habitat of endangered orangutans or other valuable ecosystems. The reputation and legacy of the Olympics is at stake unless you strengthen your timber sourcing standards, and make absolutely sure that all wood products used for the Olympics are legal and sustainable. It’s time you cut ties with any supplier found to be destroying vital rainforests.
