Tokyo Olympic venue construction is accused of protesting with endangered forest environmental groups 

Original title: Tokyo Olympic venue construction is accused of using endangered forests to invite environmental groups to protest 

According to the British "Guardian" reported on November 29, the environmental protection organization accused the use of wood from the endangered Southeast Asian tropical rainforest in the construction of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, causing irreversible damage to biodiversity conservation. 

The environmental protection organization said in the allegation that the purchase policy of the Tokyo Olympics "causes the Indonesian tropical rain forest and the habitat of the Borneo endangered orangutan to be destroyed." 

According to reports, these allegations are concentrated on the use of 8,700 tropical wooden plywood.  These plywoods are mainly supplied by the Korean and Indonesian joint venture "Korindo".  This month, a number of reports from non-governmental organizations disclosed these.  However, Korindo responded that the company's operations were in full compliance with Indonesian law and had obtained the consent of the local community and did not use illegal timber. 

Environmentalists worry that the new large national stadium in Japan may also use this type of wood. 

 Hana Heineken, a spokesperson for the environmental protection organization Rainforest Action Network, said that "the use of these timbers in the Tokyo Olympics is a flagrant violation of the Olympic organizers' commitment to sustainability as the core principle of the 2020 Olympics." 

 A spokesperson for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics said, “Only timber that meets sustainable procurement standards can be used for the construction of Olympic venues.” The spokesperson also said that the Olympic Committee is working with companies, NGOs and certification programs. The creator re-evaluated the standard.
