Climate Change

Our research correspondent is living in Europe and he told us that climate change is not a pseudo problem. He thinks it is a real problem that we must tackle from now on. The flat that he lived in at first did not have an air-conditioning. It was more than 100 years old flat and it might not be a problem 100 or even 30 years ago. However, he has experienced heat waves many times during his stay and sometimes it was more than 40 degrees Celsius.

Therefore, it might cause a serious health problem for him. Fortunately, he is relatively young and he could overcome it at the time. However, we cannot conclude that our youth may not cause a problem. Also, to introduce air-conditioning is important, but it is not a solution for climate change. We must take proper actions now.

Also, we think that companies have a big responsibility for this issue. This is because their countermeasures will have more impact on our society than individuals. In fact, Apple is planning to become carbon neutral across its entire business, manufacturing supply chain, and product life cycle by 2030. As we know, Apple is one of the biggest companies in the world. Also, its products including iPhone, iPad, Mac Book, Air Pods and others that have strong brand.

Therefore, we think that this initiative can be a standard for the other companies. We will look at Murata’s initiative later and the company is one of the major Apple’s suppliers.
