Markets and Trends

With the global population’s exponential growth―which has continued unabated since the Industrial Revolution―and an expanding middle class in newly emerging economies, demand for resources will most certainly continue to grow. However, the supply of natural resources is limited. This makes the question of how to achieve sustainable development while grappling with the risk of growing resource constraints a challenge shared by the entire world.
01
Support for securing primary resources
Demand for nonferrous metals continues to grow amid the transition to a decarbonized and digital society. However, the grade of ore has been declining in recent years and there are concerns about intensifying competition for resources and rising prices. These factors are raising questions about the world’s ability to reliably meet this rising demand.
We study measures to environmental and social impacts arising from the development of mineral resources, and we provide support for the building of institutional frameworks and advancement of technologies for resource development.
Service Examples
Indirect support for mineral resources development (economic studies, trend surveys on development entities and regulatory authorities in other countries and international bodies)
System and technology studies concerning the management of hazardous substances that can arise in mineral resources development
Studies of environmental and social impacts that can arise in mineral resources development
Circular Economy
“Circular economy” is a new economic development model that is built on circulating resources and products at all levels of economic activity, minimizing amounts of resource investment and consumption as well as generated waste, and maximizing added value during the cycle.
It aims to break away from the “linear economy”―i.e., the traditional one-way form of economic activity that produces, consumes and discards resources and products in large quantities―and to realize a sustainable society that balances economic growth with a smaller environmental footprint. The practical application of the circular economy model is beginning in Europe and other regions.
02
Support for securing secondary resources
Japan is poor in natural resources. This means Japan must effectively use secondary resources to meet its resource requirements. A resource can only be considered a “resource” if it is obtained in certain quantities and with consistent quality. Therefore, securing quantity of secondary resource requires the building of mechanisms for collecting waste, and securing its quality requires the verification of recycling technologies.
Working with the DOWA Group, which is an operator of environmental management businesses, we provide support for the building of waste-collection mechanisms and the development and verification of relevant technologies.
Service Examples
Institutional/technical studies and promotion of demonstration projects for the building of collection systems for valuable metals and other waste
Institutional/technical studies and promotion of demonstration projects for the recovery and utilization of resources from collected waste
Feasibility study and environmental and social due diligence for waste treatment business
