The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games has adopted a sustainable sourcing code for the promotion of sustainable palm oil.

A general sourcing code was formulated to ensure the sustainability as well as economic rationality of all products, services, etc. procured by the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee) during the preparation and operating phases of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. In addition, the sourcing code also defines the individual criteria for the sourcing of timber, agricultural products, livestock products, fishery products, paper, and palm oil.

The Sourcing Code for the Promotion of Sustainable Palm Oil provides a framework for sustainable procurement of palm oil (including palm kernel oil) used for products, services, etcetera.
