Japan to Target Univ. Students in Curbing Parcel Redeliveries

Politics

Tokyo, Aug. 13 (Jiji Press)--Japan's Environment Ministry plans to target university students in measures to curb package redeliveries, which lead to exhaust gases and carbon dioxide in the air.

Working with bodies close to the university students such as university cooperatives, the ministry will conduct a survey and come up with measures to prevent redeliveries for young people.

The ministry plans to devise effective measures by listening to the opinions of university students, who frequently use online shopping services.

In an opinion poll for the Cabinet Office in 2017, respondents who said they asked for redelivery for almost all their parcels were sorted by age group.

Out of all age groups, people aged 18-29 had the highest proportion of such respondents, at 17.3 pct, according to the survey.
