Climate Change Description:

The Global Environmental Subcommittee of the Industrial Structure Council started deliberations on countermeasures for global warming in January 2004. The main issues for deliberation are as follows: - Evaluation and review of the New Climate Change Policy Program in order to fulfill the reduction targets defined in the Kyoto Protocol; - Work toward establishing a future sustainable international framework; and - Direction of countermeasures for global warming from the mid and long-term viewpoints such as technical development. As a result of the deliberations, the subcommittee published its interim report in August 2004 so that reasonable and effective countermeasures for global warming according to the principle of contribution to both the environment and the economy can be executed.

This record is superseded by:Interim Report on Future Measures for Global Warming by the Global Environmental Subcommittee, Environmental Committee, Industrial Structure Council
