JAPAN NET ZERO EMISSIONS 2050

JAPAN NET ZERO EMISSIONS 2050

ENERDATA13 Oct 2021 - Japan has updated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), raising its target reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for 2030 from 26% to 46% (2013 as a base year). The 46% cut would reduce GHG emissions by 648 MtCO2eq to 760 MtCO2eq in 2030. In addition, the country pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The new target was unveiled by the government in April 2021. Japan also plans to contribute to international emission reductions and removals at the level of a total of around 100 MtCO2eq by the fiscal year 2030 through public-private collaborations.

Japan’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions decreased by 2.9% in the financial year 2019-2020 (April 2019-March 2020) to 1,212 MtCO2eq, their lowest level since 1990-1991. It is the sixth year in a row of decline, which is mainly driven by the increased use of renewable energies, the restart of nine nuclear reactors and a lower energy demand thanks to a warmer winter and reduced energy consumption by industry. It represents a 14% decline compared to the financial year 2013.

Australia's adoption of a net zero emissions target is significant as it is one of the largest producers and exporters of fossil fuels and falling in line with the UN mandated net zero pledge would signal there could be tighter regulations on emissions reduction.
