What makes Japan an environmentally friendly country?
Question by : What makes Japan an environmentally friendly country?
Japan is the host country of Kyoto protocol. Even though it’s a small island with dense population, it’s achieving good results in environment protection. It’s much less polluted compared to other big cities like Shanghai, Hong Kong. etc. What kind of policies or kulture do Japanese people follow?
Answer by Louis Irving
Car ownership is low in the big cities. Mass transport systems are good, and generally cheap in the big cities. Japanese houses tend to be modern and energy efficient. Energy usage per capita is one of the lowest in the developed world. Still, there is considerable wastage of power. Nuclear power, which contributed about 30% of Japan’s electric, doesn’t emit greenhouse gases (except in the building and decomissioning of the plant). Solar and renewable energy looks to be getting a big boost in light of the Fukushima problems.
