 The environmental NGO Japan for Sustainability (JFS) (Co-representatives, Junko Edahiro & Hiroyuki Tada), has chosen 20 headline indicators for sustainability based o­n an analysis of over 200 data sets in several sustainability-related categories.
 This is the first ever numerical evaluation / trial calculation of national sustainability for Japan. Results show a score of 33.5 points for 2005 in relation to a hypothetical perfect score of 100 projected for 2050. Japan?s score for 1990 was 41.3 points, meaning sustainability in Japan has declined about 19% since 1990.Though these are still trial calculations, they delineate the gap between the ideal and the reality of sustainability in Japan. JFS?s aims are to point out the problem, evoke a wide-ranging discussion o­n how to build a sustainable society in Japan, and specifically, promote the adoption of a comprehensive national sustainability strategy. Nature: 16.4 (1990)  24.0 (2005) Greater awareness still needs to be acted o­n.Economy: 37.6 (1990)  18.2 (2005)Worst decline; massive debt threatens future generationsSociety: 43.4(1990)  35.4 (2005)SRI, women?s participation up, traditional industry down.Well-being: 67.6(1990)  56.4 (2005)Overall high figures tainted by high suicide rate.
