Sustainable Material Cycles Research Program

Outline of Program

We engage with environmental issues on three fronts – international environmental issues which affect Japan and extend throughout Asia; issues focused on developing countries in Asia; and domestic issues. We engage in initiatives relating to scientific and technical aspects of the efficient use and appropriate management of resources and waste and countermeasures for climate change. On this basis, we will actively support the creation of sustainable material cycle societies – both in Japan and overseas – which reconcile climate change policy and implementation strategies.
