JFS Indicators of Sustainability

Is Japan closer to sustainability, compared to the year before? Have we moved forward and closer even by an inch? Or somehow have we moving backwards, farther from sustainability?

In order to make answers to these questions visible, we at JFS envision defining indicators and work little by little to draw a big picture of a "Vision of a Sustainable Japan" or "The shape of a sustainable country."
