Japan’s Energy and Climate Policy Ahead of the G7 Hiroshima Summit (Japan Climate Initiative – JCI)

post date : 2023.03.30

   Ahead of the G7 Summit, which will be held in Hiroshima in May this year, the G7 Ministers' Meeting on Climate, Energy and Environment in Sapporo will be held on April 15 and 16. This meeting will be important to decide a strategic framework for how the G7 nations will deal with the simultaneous climate and energy crises.

   The Japan Climate Initiative (JCI) is calling for the Japanese government to take more active measures in response to climate change and for energy policy. The FPCJ has invited one of the co-representatives of the JCI and a member of its steering committee to discuss the issues and outlook for energy policy based on the Basic Policy for the Realization of GX recently passed by the Cabinet, and for the implementation of carbon pricing.


  The JCI has 754 member organizations (as of March 28, 2023), including businesses, local governments, and academic institutions, and as a network of non-state actors in Japan with increasing influence, it is hoped that the JCI and its members will take more action. This briefing will be an opportunity to hear about how serious Japan is regarding these problems.
