(This is a sequel to the article of December 15, 2018: “Greenhouse gases Observing Satellite-2 (GOSAT-2) was launched in Japan in October, 2018.”)

The second point of the Japanese government’s efforts for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is as follows. On November 30, 2018, the Ministry of the Environment announced that Japan’s National Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions in 2017 (preliminary figures) had been reduced to 8.2% compared to 2013, and consequently, the reduction for 4 consecutive years during 2014-2017 had been recorded.

Although the official figures will be announced in due course, I made this information public at COP 24 so that it would be of some impetus to the participating parties. If we look at Japan’s goal of the 26% reduction of GHG emissions below the level of 2013 by 2030, 8.2% is obviously not sufficient, but I believe that the fact that Japan has been achieving the reduction of the GHG emissions for 4 consecutive years has been appreciated by the parties participating at COP24.
