Environment Minister YAMAGUCHI Speaks on Japan’s Grand Design for Decarbonization (Minister of the Environment, Dr. YAMAGUCHI Tsuyoshi)

post date : 2022.07.01

In the Grand Design and Action Plan for a New Form of Capitalism, which the Japanese government approved in June, green transformation was positioned as an important area for investment. A variety of measures have begun with the goal of massive investment in decarbonization, including the selection of Decarbonization Leading Areas as starting points for a “decarbonization domino effect”, and supporting developing countries through the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM).


What grand design will Japan make to bring about a decarbonized society, and how will it be implemented? The FPCJ has invited Dr. YAMAGUCHI Tsuyoshi, Minister of the Environment, to discuss this topic.
