The objective of this research project is to assess the performance of environmental policies implemented following the global financial crisis in leading nations including Japan, while at the same time proposing practical policies with regard to the ideal forms of future Japanese industrial and energy policies from the perspective of developing new growth fields--all while also taking into account the Great East Japan Earthquake. The significance of this project is the fact that it will conduct evaluative analysis by clearly taking into consideration the characteristics of environmental policies as industrial policies. During this period of global competition, mutual interactions between markets, between industries, and within industries are multifaceted, and the effects of industrial policy will not necessarily be as initially expected. Economic analysis enables comprehensive evaluative analysis of industrial policies clearly taking mutual interactions into consideration.
