June Is Environment Month:
Let’s Think about Environmental Issues Together

Inquiries: Environmental Policy Section, Ext. 2525

Said to be the cause of natural disasters and abnormal weather conditions, global warming is a serious issue that can even affect the existence of all humankind. We can reduce the burden on the environment significantly by conserving energy and our natural resources. Let’s review our everyday lifestyles and habits, and start leading lives that are kind to the Earth.

  • Set the thermostat of air conditioners (coolers) at a room temperature of 28°C
  • Take your own bags when going shopping
  • Avoid letting the water run—or leaving the electricity or gas on—when not in use
  • Ride a bicycle or take public transportation such as the bus or train when going out
  • Consume locally produced vegetables in season
  • Select energy-efficient household appliances
  • Sort your garbage carefully and try hard to reduce the amount of garbage
