Japanisches Ranking von Umweltberichten im Jahr 2000

Etwa 2008 besuchte Naohiko Ando ein pensionierter Japaner der in seinem Ruhestand noch an einer Universität tätig war Deutschland. Er traf sich mit mir um sich über das Ranking der Umweltberichte auszutauschen, an dem ich damals mehrfach mitgearbeitet hatte. Herr Ando initiierte schließlich an der Hochschule gemeinsam mit einem Umweltverband die Durchführung des Rankings an japanischen Berichten. Mittlerweile sind die Japanischen Internetseiten nicht mehr verfügbar, aber es gibt noch diese kurze englische Zusammenfassung der damaligen Ergebnisse
