The glass block is back in the news again, with the Japanese company Oikawa sending a letter to its employees warning that “the current crisis of global warming poses a grave threat to our industry”.
The letter says that “current climate changes are affecting the world’s water supply and the health of our people”.
Oikawa is among a number of Japanese companies that have been hit by a surge in the number of companies seeking protection from the new global warming legislation.
The legislation was passed by the US Congress last year.
It gives US companies a 30-year protection period, and allows them to seek compensation from the governments of the countries in which they operate.
The US has already sought $1bn in compensation from China for damages caused by carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.
Oikawa has been among the most vocal companies in the US in urging companies to stay in the Paris Agreement. “
We are also very aware of the negative impacts this legislation will have on the health and safety of our employees.”
Oikawa has been among the most vocal companies in the US in urging companies to stay in the Paris Agreement.
It has also called on other companies to join it.
“If we do not participate, we will be unable to provide the services that we need in order to meet our customers needs, and we will also lose our business,” it said.
The glass blocks company said that it had not been given an answer to its letter, but said it would continue to fight the legislation.
Oikawa’s CEO, Hiroshi Tanaka, told the Associated Press news agency: “The company is committed to complying with the requirements of the law.
We will continue to take the necessary measures to ensure the health, safety and security of our workers.”
It is not the first time Oikawa and other Japanese companies have been targeted by the new law.
The company said it was looking into whether to sue the US for damages in the future.
