ABSTRACT
The article features energy-saving techniques used by companies to minimize global warming. The Japanese company Sagawa Express is taking major steps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its vehicles. Based in Kyoto, Japan, the company handles about 940 million packages annually. Its goal is to become the number one logistics company in Asia using its 20,000 vehicles while reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Another development in Tokyo aims to boost use of renewable energy to about 20 percent by 2020. On April 3, 2006, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) described its strategy as valuable not only as a measure against global warming, but also as a tool for the development of disaster prevention measures.
