IGES 1.5°C Roadmap : An action plan for Japan - more ambitious emissions reduction and a prosperous, vibrant society

cover image

This report examines the feasibility of Japan not only achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, but also making significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, so as to make its cumulative emissions as small as possible, thereby contributing to the global goal of limiting the average temperature increase to below 1.5°C compared to the pre-industrial levels. The report examines pathways for Japan and provides an action plan to realise them.
