in Japanese

The Japan Climate Initiative (JCI), of which Renewable Energy Institute serves as the secretariat together with WWF Japan and CDP Japan, submitted to the Japanese government a statement in response to the government’s decision to resubmit to the UNFCCC its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), which includes the greenhouse gas emissions reduction target by 2030, without any increases.

Comment from Takejiro Sueyoshi, JCI representative
A Raise of Japan’s Reduction Target is Urgently Needed
In Response to the Submission of the Japanese Government’s NDC

 
This follows the statement issued this February by 248 signatories (159 companies, 25 municipalities, 64 other organizations) participating in the Japan Climate Initiative (JCI) requesting the Japanese government to raise its NDC ambition.
 
The Japanese government must show the world before COP26 a clear will to join the frontline of the world in addressing the climate crisis by promptly presenting a specific timing and process for raising its reduction target, beyond just referring to the start of review of the Plan for Global Warming Countermeasures.
 
Renewable Energy Institute will contribute to the efforts of companies and local governments towards the transition to a decarbonized society by clarifying the possibilities of electricity supply in 2030 which will not depend on nuclear or coal-fired power, and by conducting various research studies and making policy recommendations, including elucidating the fallacy of arguments in coal-fired power export policies.
