February 05, 2021 EBC Statement on Carbon-Neutrality
At the end of October 2020, Prime Minister Suga announced that Japan will be carbon neutral by 2050. The new European Commission made similar announcement at the beginning of 2020.
The European Business Council in Japan (EBC) welcomes these announcements which, we believe, are crucial to avoid leaving the next generation with a planet in disarray.
We, moreover, believe that Japan is sending a clear message about tackling the climate issue, and that other countries will take note.
Therefore, the EBC with its committees would like to issue this statement containing various recommendations and suggestions on how to achieve the objective of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
