Japan for Sustainability(JFS) is a non-profit communication platform to
disseminate environmental information from Japan to the world, with the
aim of helping both move onto a sustainable path.
In this issue:
- Eco Products Exhibition: Japan's Showcase of Products and Activities for the Environment
- Green Purchasing and Green Procurement in Motion
- "Initiatives and Achievements of Local Government in Japan" Article Series: No.1 City of Nagoya, "Waste Reduction of 23% in Two Years!"
- Participant's Report of Eco Products Exhibition
In the JAPAN AND GLOBAL WARMING section of the previous newsletter #003,
"methane 40 percent" should be "methane 20 percent" and it should read;
One characteristic of Japan's emissions is that the percentage
of carbon dioxide is very high in comparison to the world
average composition of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide 60
percent, methane 20 percent, nitric monoxide 6 percent, CFCs and
halons 14 percent) (Source: IPCC The Third Report).
After issuing the newsletter #002, we received a request on more details
on household environmental accounting. We translated and put in on our
website for your reference.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the JFS Newsletter. We will be
delivering more information every month from Japan on activities and
developments in the field of the environment. Please visit our website
