Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike has announced a plan to make the Japanese capital free of carbon dioxide emissions during the opening and closing days of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.

Tokyo will offset emissions during the four days with donated credits acquired through a cap-and-trade program for big companies that the metropolitan government launched in fiscal 2010, Koike said in Paris on Monday.
