Cool Bizedit

The Ministry of the Environment began advocating the Cool Biz campaign in summer 2005 as a means to help reduce electric consumption by limiting use of air conditioning and allowing the wearing of less formal officewear This idea was proposed by then-Minister of the Environment Yuriko Koike under Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi

Super Cool Bizedit

Following the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, the shut down of many nuclear power plants for safety reasons lead to energy shortages To conserve energy, the government recommended setting air conditioners at 28 degrees Celsius, switching off computers not in use, and called for shifting work hours to the morning and taking more summer vacation than usual The government then launched a Super Cool Biz campaign6 to encourage workers to wear outfits appropriate for the office yet cool enough to endure the summer heat Polo shirts and trainers are allowed, while jeans and sandals are also acceptable under certain circumstances7 June 1 marked the start of the Environment Ministry's campaign, with full-page newspaper ads and photos of ministry workers smiling rather self-consciously at their desks wearing polo shirts and colorful Okinawa kariyushi shirts8 The campaign was repeated in 2012 and 20139
