Tokyo Olympics ‘lagging behind’ sustainability standards: WWF

first_imgTokyo: The 2020 Tokyo Olympics is falling “far below the global best practice” in sustainability, despite organisers placing it among the top priorities of the event, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has said.Organizers in January 2016 established a code for procuring resources and services, however, the WWF believes that Tokyo 2020 is “lagging far behind” its goal of the next Olympics being at the “forefront in the field of sustainability,” according to the environmental organization in a letter sent to the International Olympic Committee and published Monday, reports Efe news.“The committee working on the sourcing protocols for commodities like timber, fishery products, paper and palm oil has finalized standards that are far below the global best practice and inappropriate for a global event such as the Olympics,” said WWF-Japan Chief Executive Officer Ron Tsutsui in the letter.The organising committee “produced protocols that fell far below globally accepted sustainability standards” and showed “little regard for the expert advice they sought from the Working Group they set up to assist in developing world class protocols,” he added, describing it as “deeply concerning”.“As an active member of the Working Group and as an environmental organization committed to protecting our natural world, we felt we had no choice but to write to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to raise our serious concerns,” said Tsutsui.Among the specific requests made by WWF to the IOC are to disclose the origin of all the raw materials procured for the Games, as well as to conduct an external review on sourcing codes and its performance in sustainable sourcing.The NGO said that high profile events like the Olympic Games “have the opportunity, and duty, to lead and be truly sustainable” when it comes to using and consuming natural resources in a sustainable way, as well as to “leave a legacy for Japanese society to transform to be more sustainable”.In its sustainability plan, the organizing committee states that it will comply with all current regulations, in addition to taking into full consideration the impact of its policies from the point of view of climate change, the scarcity of natural resources or loss of biodiversity, business practices and human rights.

Navy SEALs cut ties with national museum over Colin Kaepernick K-9 demonstration video

first_img Sujay Chakraborty COMMENT Also Read | CB Jalen Ramsey Confident In Contract, New Role With RamsColin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem during the 2016 NFL preseason as a sign of protest against racial violence and police brutality. Despite heavy criticism, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback continued with his protests, which many suspect was the primary reason behind his NFL exit the following year.Kaepernick’s ‘Take a knee’ protests have become prominent in 2020 since the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum in the US after the death of George Floyd. Floyd, an African-American, was brutally murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. His death led to mass protests in the US and kickstarted the global movement against racism.For athletes looking to show solidarity with the movement, kneeling during the national anthem ahead of games has become a go-to option. Players in MLB, MLS and NBA have supported the movement by kneeling while wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ shirts. It is believed that NFL players are planning to do the same when the 2020 season commences in September. Also Read | Buccaneers Rookie Wirfs Prepares To Do Part To Help BradyAlso Read | Dolphins’ 2017 3rd-round Pick Cordrea Tankersley Waived(Image Credits: Billy Corben Twitter Handle) The Navy SEALs have severed all ties with the National Navy SEAL Museum after a K-9 demonstration video went viral on social media which showed the dogs attacking a man wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey. According to an email procured by AP, Rear Admiral Collin Green, who heads the Naval Special Warfare Command, wrote: “Each and every one of us serves to protect our fellow Americans — ALL Americans. Even the perception that our commitment to serving the men and women of this nation is applied unevenly is destructive.”The email, which was sent to the various departments of the US Defence force, stated that Navy SEALs will revisit the “relationship with the museum” when they are convinced that the National Navy SEAL Museum has made the necessary changes to ensure this act is not repeated again.  1 month ago ‘Suicide Squad’ director agrees with fan theory about Joker recruiting fake Harley Quinn Last Updated: 5th August, 2020 18:25 IST Navy SEALs Cut Ties With National Museum Over Colin Kaepernick K-9 Demonstration Video The Navy SEALs have severed ties with the National Navy SEAL Museum after their video went viral showing dogs attacking a man in Colin Kaepernick’s jersey.
