The World Wide Fund for Nature has called on Japanese businesses to establish a council to fight global climate change and take a leading role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions before a key conference in December in Kyoto.

The appeal was made at the the Second WWF Japan Corporate Supporter’s Meeting Business Symposium in Tokyo July 7. To facilitate a reduction in greenhouse gases, the WWF also announced at the meeting that it will sponsor a study by Japanese scientists, based on a similar survey conducted in Europe, to determine how to implement emissions-reduction policies.
