Japan Summary


Japan has a long established product stewardship program being one of the first countries to adopt product take-back legislation with the original Specified Home Appliance Recycling Law (SHARL) enacted in 1998. Availability of natural energy and mineral resources have been, and continue to be, key drivers of policy in the environmental and energy management in general and in specific aspects of product stewardship, most notably Design for Environment, Product Take-Back and Energy Efficiency. For example, energy policy, strongly focused on initiatives to improve energy efficiency (e.g. "Top Runner Program" and investment in energy technology Research and Development), is strongly influenced by a dependence on imported energy sources and has resulted in Japan having the highest energy intensity in the industrial sector among other developed countries. Concerns over access to precious metals, including indium and platinum, are currently recognized as a key driver for different aspects of product stewardship policies including restricted substance management and recycling.
