    [Abstract]

    This paper investigates the relationships between the scores of 109 Japanese corporations found in the NIKKEI environmental management ranking survey and the corporate culture of each firm. Corporate culture is measured with the instrument developed by Cameron and Quinn (2006). The instrument measures corporate culture in terms of four categories: clan culture, adhocracy culture, hierarchy culture, and market culture. The results indicate that adhocracy culture has statistically significant positive relationships with the management system, product development, and climate change mitigation aspects of environmental management or sustainability management. Excessive hierarchy culture has a negative relationship with the overall score of environmental management. An appropriate combination of hierarchy culture and adhocracy culture enhances the overall score.

    [Abstract]

    Since the Commons Forests Modernization Act of 1966, the Japanese government has promoted so-called "modernization of commons forests", i.e. creation of modern (group or individual) property ownership out of IRIAI type forest management scheme in Japan. In these decades, the creation of modern property ownership has been stagnating. This paper examines what factors are correlated with the creation of modern property ownership in 45 prefectures in Japan. It is found that the sizes of common forests groups and the ratios of plantation forests are negatively correlated with the creation; strength of commons-type management (e.g. loss of right after leaving the village) is positively correlated with the creation of group ownership, and that past labor contribution is positively correlated with the creation of individual ownership. A close examination finds that the economy of scale in the creation of modern ownership turns into the DIS-economy of scale around the level of 201 households.
