Masaki Ishikawa

Professor, Faculty of Economics, Graduate School of Economics, Kobe University (Circular Economics, Voluntary Approach, Participatory Approach in Environmental Policy, Extended Producer Responsibility)

My research has focused on waste management policy. Japan has achieved one of the highest collection rates for beverage containers in the world, despite the fact that the deposit system is not widespread and there are no economic incentives. This is due to the voluntary efforts of companies, the establishment of sorted collection by the government, and the high-precision source separation by citizens. I would like to clarify how and why this was established and the limits of the system, and make efforts to create a better system in countries such as China, where resource recycling systems must be developed. Currently, in Japan, he is conducting research related to the Containers and Packaging Recycling Law, the Home Appliance Recycling Law, and the Food Recycling Law. We are working on implementation.
