At the summit, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stated that he had made climate change a top priority and implemented various initiatives since becoming prime minister, and declared his intent to aim for carbon neutrality by 2050 and to promote local initiatives and innovation taking advantage of Japan’s technological capabilities. He also announced that Japan will provide 6.5 trillion yen in public and private funding to developing countries for climate change measures in the five years leading up to 2025.
