Eco-Model City(global warming countermeasures)
Initially, 13 cities were selected in 2008, and after the Great East Japan Earthquake, energy issues are getting closer, and 7 cities in 2012 and 2013 Three cities (including Niseko Town) have been selected.
In selected cities, we aim to realize regional models that maximize regional resources, cross-sectoral and cross-subject barriers, to achieve both low-carbon sustainability and sustainable development.
We devised the second Niseko Town Eco-Model City Action Plan
By promoting this plan, the foundation of “Sustainable Development” that satisfies the needs of future generations and satisfies the needs of current generations will be built, and municipalities truly befitted as “ Eco-Model City ” I will aim for.

Challenge for next-generation ultra-energy-saving facilities.
Public office new government building
In order to minimize the heat demand, we will introduce a cogeneration system that uses LP gas as fuel to supply both heat and electricity, and supply energy efficiently.
The new government building will be constructed to 2020 degree (FY2020) and will be used from 2021 degree (FY2021) in May.
Examination of town development with short travel distance
"A town with a short moving distance" included in the action plan. It is also described as a "town that can be walked around" or a "compact town." Why does Niseko Town need to be compact? And is it really necessary?
In November and October 2019, with Mr. Atsushi Murakami as the lecturer, ``Niseko Town should be prepared for from the environmental crisis occurring around the world and the future forecast of the town, focusing on the case of Zermatt, an environmental city in Switzerland, etc. We held town development townsman lecture about "thing".
If you live at Niseko Town, you can hardly imagine `` living without a car '', but since Zermatt banned the driving of ordinary cars in 1931, it has refused to invite cars to the town . "Only commercial vehicles run in the city, all of which are low-speed electric cars made by local artisans. The city is compact and within walking distance of all services, shopping, schools, hospitals, hotels and eateries. -I learned that there is such a town, and participants and opinions from the viewpoint of "What can be used for the future of Niseko Town" and "Is a town with a short travel distance necessary?" Replaced.
“Creating a town with a short travel distance” is a grand theme of rethinking the structure of the town itself, and it is very difficult because various merits and demerits are assumed. You. However, in order to create a sustainable Niseko Town, discussions must be advanced one step at a time without delaying discussions.
In the wake of the town development course for the townspeople in November, the government office set up a team to study each section. From various viewpoints such as infrastructure, facility layout, and ordinances, we will examine the issues and directions for “City development with short travel distances”. In the future, we would like to deepen the discussion with the townspeople while showing the platform for discussions by this study team.
Consideration for establishing a regional energy company
At first, even in a small start, we will accumulate know-how through business operations such as electric heat supply, and in the future, grow into a business entity that implements strong measures with a sense of speed in close proximity to the area, so that the town should be what it should be The realization of the realization becomes possible.
This year, the Niseko Town Regional Energy Utilization Review Council was established to discuss the establishment of a regional energy company and its contents, and has been conducting investigations and studies on the launch of a regional energy company.
