The Global Future Council on Japan brought together a multi-stakeholder expert group to formulate a new vision and path for Japan’s sustainable transition. In its 2020-2021 term, the Council will focus on two working groups: (1) Food and (2) Circular Economy. 

Among other themes, the Circular Economy working group is (1) discussing how to reach consumer behavioral change, one of the key pillars of the Global Future Council on Japan, and (2) developing a new business model case study through value chain collaboration, thus connecting key players in the circular economy, such as material suppliers, manufacturers, repairers, and secondary market players. 

 

Objectives for 2021 

Its objectives are: (1) policy suggestion, pointing out top priority domestic issues, (2) dissemination to the international community and (3) creating opportunities for accelerating public-private partnership or inter-corporate collaboration.
