Affiliation Environmental Management and Sustainabilty
Profile The starting point of my research is the illegal dumping of industrial waste that came to light in various places in the 1990s. I think the development of both the arterial and venous industries will lead to illegal dumping and garbage problems. I will conduct research that will lead to a partnership between the two sectors and stable management of the venous industry. Specifically, (1) improvement of the production process using MFCA (Material Flow Cost Accounting), (2) research on business continuity planning (BCP) and management control system, (3) the used products recycling flow.
Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. (1) Research on improvement of the production process using MFCA (Material Flow Cost Accounting)

    In this research, waste products are investigated by investigating the actual recycling conditions in companies, regions, and the world for used products. The purpose is to predict the occurrence of risks due to illegal dumping and implement new methods of utilizing resources.

  2. (2) Research on business continuity planning (BCP) and management control system

    In this research, BCP formulation and the case where it was formulated for the areas and companies affected by natural disasters such as the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Kumamoto Earthquake. The purpose is to clarify how the management control system (organizational management) is performed in standard times and non-stationary times by investigating its effect.

  3. (3) Research on recycling flow of used products

    In this research, investigating the actual recycling situation of used products in companies, regions, and the world, risks arise due to illegal dumping of waste. The purpose is to implement forecasts and new ways of utilizing resources in companies.
