Saitama Prefecture's Program to Reduce Environmental Impacts (Eco-Up Declaration)

In accordance with Saitama Prefecture's ordinance to preserve the living environment (Saitama Prefectural Ordinance No. 57 of 2001), since April 1, 2002, the local government has required businesses that impose more than a certain level of impact on the environment to formulate a plan to reduce those impacts and to submit the plan to the local government. The plan, called Eco-Up declaration, must describe their environmental management initiatives, such as the establishment of impact reduction targets and the evaluation of results, in order to reduce environmental impacts from business activities and promote better communication on environmental issues between businesses and local communities. Businesses are also required to disclose their plans to the public.

Saitama Prefecture's Eco-Up Certification Program

Saitama Prefecture launched an Eco-Up program to certify Earth-friendly businesses on February 1, 2008. In this program, Saitama grants Eco-Up certification to businesses that are engaged in Saitama's Eco-Up declaration program in accordance with its ordinance to preserve the living environment, and that make an outstanding effort to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In the program, by giving official recognition to earth-friendly businesses, Saitama aims to help them make further efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, with a view to accelerating emission reductions in industry.
