Abstract

This study attempted to comprehensively measure annual environ mental loads emitted in Japanese administrative divisions (municipalities) in the year 2015 using the LCIA method IJME2. Using statistical information that was reliable, verifiable, and comparable, the environmental damage amount for the whole of Japan was calculated to be 8.53 trillion yen. The top three amounts for each impact category were "Global warming". "Land use", and "Waste (domestic)". The damage amounts per capita were placed on a map of Japan to visualize tendencies related to population distribution and industrial activity.
