Establishment and History of Activities

  • From November, 2008
  • In the face of global warming, Japan must take responsible action to reduce CO2 emissions and the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry needs to further strengthen its own voluntary efforts currently in effect. The promotion of reducing CO2 emissions of ICT equipment and services themselves as well as the 3Rs (reduce, re-use, recycle) of mobile telephone handsets was discussed by the “Study Group on Ecological Measures in the Info-communications Industry” under the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC).

  • June, 2009
  • The above mentioned MIC Study Group released a report listing the procurement of energy-efficient equipment by telecommunications services providers and making reductions in CO2 emissions by telecommunications services providers more visible - as two effective measures in decreasing CO2 emissions.

  • From June, 2009
  • With the above report, 5 telecommunication industry associations established the “ICT Ecology Guideline Council” in order to further implement measures to prevent global warming as an industry as a whole. The Council has worked on putting together “a guideline for telecommunication service providers in establishing procurement standards and assessment standards of voluntary measures.”

  • February, 2010
  • Announced the completion of the “Ecology Guideline for the ICT Industry” version 1.

  • July, 2010
  • Started implementation of the “Ecology Guideline for the ICT Industry” version 1 on July 1.

  • March, 2011
  • Announced the completion of the “Ecology Guideline for the ICT Industry” version 2.

  • February, 2012
  • Announced the completion of the “Ecology Guideline for the ICT Industry” version 3.

  • February, 2013
