Measures against global warming
Due to this influence, various problems such as a place where the sea level rises and submerge, an increase in abnormal weather, occurrence of water shortage etc. occurs. Even Niseko is worried about climate change, powder snow disappears, agricultural products are adversely affected.
Global warming is the expansion of human activity, which means that the surface temperature of the earth rises by increasing the concentration of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. Especially the influence of carbon dioxide is said to be great.
The world temperature rose by 0.74 degrees in the past 100 years.
The amount of carbon dioxide emitted by people is about 2.3 times the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the earth's nature. If carbon dioxide emission continues to exceed the absorption amount as it is, the limit will be reached.
Experts predict that the limit of CO 2 concentration on the earth is 450 ppm. Current CO2 concentration of the Earth is 380 ppm. Earth's carbon dioxide continues to increase steadily.
Now, measures to prevent global warming are necessary.
Niseko Town Global Warming Countermeasures Action Plan (Area Measures)
In compliance with the Law Concerning the Promotion of Measures to Cope with Global Warming, we have formulated the "Local Public Organization Action Plan (Area Measures Version)" for Global Warming Countermeasures to show the medium-term greenhouse gas reduction targets, We aim to strengthen and work on this in the regional age, aiming at realizing a low-carbon society with a long-term perspective.
In addition, development of global warming measure implementation plan is obliged by public entity more than special city, and Niseko Town is not the object. Niseko Town is eager to formulate this plan and hope to promote global warming countermeasures strategically and to promote low-carbon cities.
4th Niseko Town Global Warming Countermeasures Action Plan (Office Business)
Under this plan, we have set a goal that is comparable to the national plan for global warming prevention, such as "reducing greenhouse gas emissions from administrative affairs and business by 40% in 2030 compared to 2013" Based on our basic policy of improving comfort and the quality of operations and significantly reducing environmental impact, we will take the initiative in implementing initiatives.

Efforts concerning energy so far
Niseko Town New Energy Vision (Prepared in February 2004)
Niseko Town Energy Conservation Vision (Prepared in February 2005)
Niseko Town Energy Conservation Vision (Priority Theme) (Created in February 2006)
Investigation of Niseko Town Micro Hydroelectric Power Generation Site (Created in November 2011)
Eco-year agriculture establishment project by geothermal use
We introduced a geothermal heat heat pump (50 borehole, 2 horizontal loops, 3 HP 10 kw 3) into the highly insulated agricultural vinyl house of 50 tsubo, cultivate spinach, komatsuna and mizuna, and influence the house due to snow cover We conducted a demonstration experiment on heating with a medium heat heat pump. As a result, there were no house defects due to snow covering, and it was possible to confirm a significant reduction in running cost, and although there are problems such as initial cost, we could demonstrate the possibility of low carbonization and winter agriculture It was.
In addition, this project is being implemented utilizing the Independence Activation Promotion Grant Project such as depopulated regions of the country.
The report of the survey project can be viewed from the following materials.
Wood biomass demonstration feasibility study
In considering, we established examination committees by experts and stakeholders and examined operational issues and others.
Based on consultation at the committee, it was summarized as a report.
The report can also be viewed at the office building planning environmental section (open time 8: 30 ~ 17: 15) and the townspeople learning center "Asobuku".
Heisei era FY2009 energy structure upgrade / conversion Understanding promotion project
In addition, we implemented energy conservation facilities in public facilities, promoted reengineering in tourism fields, energy conversion, survey study projects and study sessions aimed at individual town residents' efforts.
Specifically, we organized the idea of energy in the new government building, energy diagnosis for tourism operators, holding study group, survey study for establishing regional new electric power, eco night cafe and footpath.
