Since 1992, the Asahi Glass Foundation has conducted a survey “Questionnaire on Environmental Problems and the Survival of Humankind” each year with experts around the world who are knowledgeable and are involved in environmental issues. The respondent pool includes government officials and those in universities and research institutions, nongovernmental organizations, corporations and mass media, and is queried about various endeavors to counter environmental problems.
The questionnaires are sent out to approximately 4,000 respondents every April and collected by June. After the responses are compiled, compared, and analyzed, the survey results are announced in September. The questionnaire, as well as the report, is available in Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
Each year the Foundation conducts a survey of the sense of crisis felt by respondents about the continuance of the human race as the global environment continues to deteriorate, gauging the responses with the time expressed on the hands of the Environmental Doomsday Clock created by the Foundation.
