What is Japan doing for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    As a country that consumes a large amount of fossil fuels but places a high priority on environmental preservation, in recent years Japan has taken steps to conserve resources, restrict emissions, promote recycling and implement environmental standards across the board. Japan’s Ministry of Environment included global warming, waste management and water and soil quality in their 2006 list of major issues. In accordance with the Kyoto Protocol, which they hosted in 1997, the country plans to reduce carbon emissions to 6 percent less than the country’s 1990 levels by 2012. Additionally Japanese citizens often have a smaller ecological footprint than Americans or even many Europeans due to the urban lifestyle.
