Japan has instituted a new summer dress code, dubbed “Super Cool Biz,” to help save electricity during the hot summer months. In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they agree with a summer dress code to encourage reduced energy consumption. Do you agree with their responses? 

Japan has instituted a new summer dress code, dubbed “Super Cool Biz,” to help save electricity during the hot summer months. In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they agree with a summer dress code to encourage reduced energy consumption, such as dressing in lighter weight clothes to lessen the use of air conditioning.

The majority of respondents (80%) do agree with the summer dress code, while others (13.3%) believe that business requires business dress. (The remaining respondents, 6.7%, answered other.)

Comments included:

“Interesting. I would like to think people could manage this without a mandate by using (un)common sense and a modicum of concern about energy consumption. If it were mandated, it would just be one more thing for people to gripe/complain/protest about.”

“Even shorts, T-shirts, and flip flops won’t help once the office gets to 90 plus deg F. But as someone who wears sweaters to avoid freezing in the air conditioned environment, I’d be delighted to save energy and leave the sweaters at home.”

“Suit jackets and ties are outdated and add no value to the business. Clean, neat appropriate clothing is more in line with the 21st century.”

“Care should be taken with lighter dress and chemical/industrial hygiene. As a safety precaution, lighter dress should never be inappropriate PPE for the task at hand.”
