The eco Olympic and Paralympic medals for Tokyo 2020!

The first consignments of gold, silver and bronze were delivered to the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) as the Tokyo 2020 Medal Project reached a new milestone. It was the first delivery since the commencement of the project, which offers the public an opportunity to play a role in the Games' preparations, at the same time drawing attention to the importance of sustainability.

In April 2017, a nationwide collection of discarded and obsolete electronic devices-including smartphones, digital cameras, handheld games and laptops-was launched, with the aim of using the precious metals they contain in the production of the medals that will be awarded to athletes at the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. Tokyo 2020 t received all the recycled metal extracted from electronic devices collected up to June 2018. With this delivery, the target for bronze (2,700kg) has been already met, while 16.5kg of gold (54.5% of the targeted amount) and 1,800kg of silver (43.9% of the target) have been recovered.
