I'm afraid it is just a front.

One of the task as a volunteer that I learned about will be to use huge printers to print the result (and other documents) of each sports in hundreds of copies, which are then sent to delegations and the press.

The exact same data could have just been compiled on a computer and sent through an app, (e.g. email) avoiding the waste of tons of paper and ink.

The most recent official estimate of the Tokyo Games' carbon footprint is more than some countries such as Montenegro emit in a year.

Most convenience stores probably have a larger carbon footprint than Montenegro.
